Mr. Coughlan’s 5th and 6th class have been learning all about Native Americans and their culture in History. We investigated different Native American artefacts and worked as curators to decide how we should label them in our “Native American Museum.” We also found out about the Geography of North America. In Art we made Dream Catchers and decorated them with feathers and beads.
We listened to some Native American music and discussed the type of instruments and singing used. We tried our own responsorial chanting and played percussion instruments. Here is a demo of our Native Amercian chanting.
