Video Title
Thanksgiving Activity for the Classroom
Teachers, this quick and simple corn necklace activity, using widely accessible and inexpensive materials and designed for kindergarten through 5th grade, provides an alternative to the culturally inappropriate paper feather headdress sometimes made during Native American Heritage Month. The video provides step-by-step instruction on how to make the necklace. By highlighting the cultivation of corn and other agricultural contributions made Native peoples, the activity can extend or culminate a classroom lesson and connect to social studies, science, math, or, art.
