Lessons in Native American Cultures with Puppetry

Learn about three different Native American cultures (Eastern Woodlands, Plains, Southwest) while they create their own Hopi Kachina Hand Puppet.

Activities focus on the use of natural resources from the different regions, and how these resources shaped their lives in regard to clothing, shelter and even transportation. We discuss Kachinas and Hopi culture.

This is a great arts and social studies lesson all in one!
