Kachina Dolls and Classifying

Sample Kachina "Powerful Moose"

Today we worked on two big projects. The first was classifying. One of the big skills that the kids need to know for the map test is how to classify vertebrates. We worked with Mrs. Green today on learning all kinds of facts about a specific class. Tomorrow students will be sharing their information with teammates so that we have a complete classification chart. We will be having a classification test on Friday.

We also spent time today creating Kachina Dolls. These were dolls created by Native Americans to represent different spirits. We did one as a class for a made up spirit (the powerful moose). I am anxious to see how the kids do on these when they turn them in tomorrow.
