Fourth grade artists have been studying Native American life and culture in their general education classes. In efforts to support their learning, they have been simultaneously learning about Native American Art and culture in Visual Art class and Music! In their classes, they learned that many Native Americans were nomadic and never really settled in one place for a long period of time. They learned about various housing of different groups such as the Sioux, the Iroquois indians, the Navajo Nation and more. In this art lesson, students learned about Native American housing, the structure, the function, and materials used to build them. 4th grade artists learned about wigwams, longhouses, tepees, and more! They then used recycled materials to build a few 3-D Native American houses.
