Art Activities about Vikings, Woodland Indians and Early Colonists. Hands-On America.
Merrill, Yvonne Y.
This is the first book in a series that features folk art and everyday crafts for each century in the history of the United States. The book covers the period from 1598-1697. Based on museum and private collection artifacts, the book's objects are interpreted in paper and other accessible materials creating quality art projects for the camp, elementary school classroom, and home schooling. Activities in the book can be adapted for elementary and middle school ages. The book contains projects about Vikings (n=12), activities (n=35) about the New England Woodland Indians, and colonial ideas (n=24), each introduced with illustrated historical information and background stories. The descriptive drawings encourage student success in creating the projects. (BT)
