Although most of my Doodlebugs recognized the name Christopher Columbus not many of them showed any knowledge of the people that came before... which is not all that surprising since they range from 4+ to 6 in this class but they were very interested in hearing about them and of course they were thrilled when they realized we were going to make a head piece!
They had a great time decorating their feathers and choosing designs for the headbands. Some of them worked together and it was lovely to see the sharing and cooperation going on people! I have to say I was super proud :)
At the end I had them all saying Caribs and Arawaks... Turns out Arawak is a tricky word 😆
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
