American Indian Day at Kindergarten

American Indian Day is celebrated on the fourth Friday of each September.
We are lucky to have an Indian Reservation within our school district's boundaries.
 Today we celebrated the Native American Culture in style!

First we used dyed salad macaroni to make our very own beaded necklace!
(To dye, add food coloring and rubbing alcohol to salad macaroni.
Spread out on parchment sheets and dry overnight.)
Next, we created fanciful Indian Dancers from Tangrams and 1" Blocks.
Pattern and scripted lesson for this activity
can be found in our Thanksgiving Unit.


We were then entertained by the Indian Dancers
who shared their rich culture of dance with us!
And of course we cheered for our classmate that was among the dancers!
