This Native American project explores the concept of Balance. The materials are simple: Crayons and paper! Included is a template you can copy and have students use to make a 'mini', or they may draw and outline of their own large parflech. You are free to think big! The lesson can last a day or a month depending on the time you wish to utilize!

The completed envelope creates a fun option to store many flat items. I have used this concept to create an art portfolio for students to keep their art in for the entire year!

Students will enjoy the simplicity of this lesson and the beautiful results! This lesson is great for students who are intimidated by having to draw, just use 1 geometric shape!

This lesson can be modified to fit most any grade level with beautiful results!
