The second graders engaged in a Pow Wow a few days before Thanksgiving. The students rotated through all of the classes and learned about different Indian tribes. At the end of the day, there was a special assembly where students talked about their Indian tribes and placed their locations on a U.S. map. Ms. Luster's class were the Seminoles and their class activity was learning about Arrowheads. Ms. Hoffman's class were the Sioux and they had a class presenter who was a Sioux and he talked about their traditions. Ms. Lowery's class were the Apache and they grinded corn for corn meal. Ms. Lewis' class were the Cheyenne and they did face painting and headbands. Ms. Browne's class were the Iroquois and they had a stick/cup game the Iroquois played. Ms. Massey's class were the Shawnee and they made medicine bags with shells. Ms. Gillman's class were the Hopi and they made bracelets. There was a station in the Atrium where students did sand painting. Ms. Gentry's class were the Navajo and they did weaving. Ms. Mareschal's class were the Inuits and they made dream catchers.
