Transcript of Integrating Art in 2nd Grade Social Studies Focusing on Nati

Lesson 2: Native American Friendship Dance
It is important that students understand not only what Native Americans produce artistically, but also what is produced through movement. In this lesson, students watched, in part, three videos on Youtube.

Lesson 3: Native American Basket Making
In order to get a deeper understanding of Native American basketry, students viewed a video (Video 4) on the importance of baskets to Native American culture.
After the video, we went to http://www.native-languages.org/baskets.htm
to look at the different designs that went on Native American baskets.

Lesson 1: Introduction to Native Americans
In this lesson, students were introduced to Native Americans through use of my artsconnected.com Art Collector presentation:


I wanted to share this with the students because it was an important step in visualizing Native American art for Lesson 3: Basket Making
It was important for me to incorporate Native Americans into my 2nd grade Social Studies unit on Community for a few reasons. One reason was knowing that it is vital for students to understand that communities are diverse and exposure to different cultures will create a comfort and tolerance within the community. This also gave me an opportunity to introduce myself as a Native American (Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa) and allow students to begin exploring their cultural backgrounds. Another reason was show the rich culture that Native Americans have to offer to the Fargo Community. The last reason was due to Chapter 2 falling during November which is Native American month.
In the end, students were excited to continue learning about Native Americans as well as delve deeper into their own backgrounds. They seem to come with some new information about themselves everyday!
Lesson 2 Continued
After having watched the videos, students got to practice doing the friendship song.
We got in a circle around the classroom and held hands while Video 3 played in the background. Students noticed that the people in the video moved in the same direction (clockwise) and they only took steps with the drumbeat. It took some practice, but students finally got the steps and beat down.
After, we had some discussion. Students decided that they would like to do the friendship dance as an opener to their regular day before Calendar and the Pledge of Allegiance.
Lesson 3 Continued
After viewing the video and the pictures, students had a good idea about what they wanted to create on their baskets. We used clean milk and juice cartons from their daily snack. I cut off the top portion. I also cut strips of different colored construction paper (about 1 inch wide) that would fit onto the milk carton. Students then glued on the different colors to create different designs and pictures on their baskets.
