A Trip to visit the Southwest Indians

We're getting a little tired of studying the Native Americans.  Only one more group left after this.  We found it hard to find things to read about the Southwest Indians, but there were lots of crafts to do.  We made pots and kachina dolls and the girls each wove a blanket for their dolls.  We also made a button buzzer toy.  Our best reading was from Holling C. Holling's Book of Indians.  The story about Little Turtle was very exciting!
