PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Wampum Bracelets: Multiplication Arrays and Money
The Native American Wampanoag tribe of the first Thanksgiving created bracelets, belts, earrings and necklaces using wampum beads that they constructed out of shells.

Wampum – Shell Beads
2 colors:
white beads from whelk shell
purple beads made from quahog (hard-shelled clam)

Wampum beads were traded by the Wampanoag tribe. Europeans used the wampum beads as a form of currency in 1627.

Four white or two purple beads were equivalent to one penny.

To celebrate this art form by the Wampanoag, have your students make their own wampum array bracelets. Then encourage them to figure out the value of the beads they used.

(Instructions and Pre-Made Arrays included)
