Indian Shields

Students chose an animal that has a characteristic that they would like to have...such as the strength of a bear, or the eyes of a hawk. The feathers represent something about the artist. Three feathers could represent three siblings the student has or the three teeth they lost last week! Lacing is a skill that builds good eye-hand coordination along with those fine-motor skills. Great job 1st Graders!

  1. I love these plates. They are filled with the spirit of the jungle. The predator stalks his pray. Slowly creeping THEN STRIKES it's claws into the pray. That's what i think when i see the lion.
