This project is CROSS-CURRICULAR!!  It covers multiple objectives.

Science: Recognize First Peoples stories (including oral and written narratives), songs, and art, as ways to share knowledge.

Student will learn about the artist who created the graphic we will use for the art project: Clarence Mills!


Clarence is a famous for his totem poles.  There are some great videos of him work below!

Then, students create their own pop-out art!  They have to use their imagination and design skills to create a way for the image to pop out of the paper plate.  Voila!  ADST!!

You will need: 6" paper plates, felt markers, glue and paper to make the image pop-out!
