2/3 Art – Native American Art – Moccasins – January 2015

As part of a series of Art lessons that integrated with their Social Studies lessons, 2/3 Art students made moccasins and birch bark containers out of construction paper.

We discussed how Native Americans used the natural materials around them, always taking care to use their resources as respectfully and efficiently as possible. We looked at images of moccasins and containers. Finally, we walked through the steps of how to turn a 2-dimensional object, like paper, into a 3-dimensional object, like moccasins or a container.

In order to make these projects, students had to follow a long series of steps that included cutting, folding, drawing and gluing. The results are wonderful!
