Kindergarten/Technology/Makerspace - Kindergarteners had a chance to explore and build different types of Native American homes. We just started our unit on Native Americans and learned about three types of homes/shelters: A wetu home, tipi (teepee), and a plankhouse. Students partnered to build a shelter of their choosing, using a variety of supplies!
