Students are fascinated by the world’s various cultures, so studying the Northwest Coast Indians is a great introduction for the young learners in first and second grade with adaptations to fourth grade. The lesson also teaches the concept of symmetry and connects perfectly with their math concepts. Totem Poles is a collaborative lesson where each student makes one totem pole face to place on a classroom pole. What a great way to help build classroom rapport.
