Did you know that a totem pole with wings extending from its sides is a sign that “all are welcome”? Group Six learned this fact and the symbolic significance of many of the animals and colors used by the Northwestern Native Americans to create their totem poles. Original totem poles were designed by each member of Group Six with their own unique story and symbolic meaning. They continued the weeks theme of ancient times by discussing the life and some of the beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians. With this knowledge, students then used their map skills to create their own 3-D Ancient Egyptian map. In addition, there were a few students who were so inspired by the dinosaur exhibit from our trip to the Museum of Natural History that they crafted their own dinosaur skeleton model out of pasta! Great job Group Six!
