Sorry I meant to post this to the group in case anyone else could
use the ideas.
I'm not sure they had tin art forms but another take on pilgim art
lesson would be. Doing history and setting a scene in a group.
Getting everyone's intake. Then explain that there were no cities
etc. Have them make a picture of native americans viewing these new
people on their land. Maybe from the viewpoint of the woods. A great
person to look at who makes camophlage Native American
pictures(Horses) is Bev Doolittle.
I actually have a DBAE lesson on her.
2nd lesson: Horses and the different jobs they had
A horse in those days had work because of no cars. Also they were
decorated for each tribe differently.
Hat project: Hat's were shelter from the cold on their head. Making
a white or black hat, an extention would be after making a hat for
the times make another hat or changer their hat to modernize it.
I could go on but I have to be fingerprinted:)
