Two years ago I received a grant for a Native American Unit of Study. With the grant money I received, I was able to purchase materials that I otherwise would not be able to afford. These materials provided the opportunity for the unit to come to life for my students. With the hands-on learning activities, they were able to better make connections to the lives of Native Americans today and to traditions from long ago. My students had the opportunity to engage in authentic projects and experiences that they would not have been able to do had I not received the grant. I am asking for materials that have been used over the past two years that I would like to replace so that this unit of study can continue to influence the lives of my students. Some materials include: craft sticks to make a Navajo Hogan, clay to create Pueblo coil pots, plastic beads to make wampum belts, a variety of colored paints to help portray the land, yarn to make a Navajo rug, and more books to support the growing curriculum.
