Teepees, 5th Grade

My fifth graders have been learning a lot about Native Americans recently, so I thought it was the perfect time to create Teepees. We decorated our teepees using Native American designs and symbols. To help the students with this, I brought in lots of examples.

The students folded their teepees to make them stand up. We folded our teepees eight times. To make the teepee look like animal hide, I brought in yellow ochre watercolors and we did a simple wash over the whole thing.
