Week in Review (Free Choice) 15 10 09

K had the option to select any topic.


In Inquiry one of the things we have been learning about are Totem Poles. They are carved wooden pillars made by the Native American Indians. They are usually carved into animals that represent the animal for a family. Totem Poles usually have an interesting story to tell. We had to make our own miniature Totem Pole and we had to make 5 carvings that had to be pictures of something to do with a tradition that your family celebrates. Instead of having a piece of wood to carve into, we go a long stick and we had to shape clay around it. I chose to do Christmas and I had a present, a Santa hat, a Christmas tree, a candy cane, and an ornament. 

Thanks K!
