Great First Peoples art lesson. I have students create their own totem pole to tell their own story. I introduce my lesson by teaching my students that totem poles are used as a way to tell a story and heritage. This booklet includes some West Coast First Nations animal designs commonly used in totem poles. Students choose an animal that suits their personality and incorporate it into their totem. I allowed my students to use their own designs and they had a choice on whether they wanted to mimic the West Coast style. The booklet has a design page where there are prompts to get them to find images to represent their story. Great get to know your students art project.
