The fourth graders just finished an archaeology unit and invited the Rainbow Community to come see.
They built a wigwam! We’ll let the photos speak for themselves:
To build the wigwam, the students harvested local grapevine and learned to weave it in and out of the shelter to create the skeleton frame. The Omega students helped the 4th graders complete the project.
Building the wigwam reinforced their Archeology unit because it allowed them to have hands-on experience relatable to the ancient societies archeologists discover.
They also did soap carvings and rock paintings using all-natural materials.
At the end of the unit, and also to celebrate, they taught other classes about Archeology, including the Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 3 classes.
