Product Description

From the Author

Teachers love this book!
I know, because I was teaching kindergarten when I wrote it. My students worked for weeks on a unit about Native Americans, and thought of many of the projects in the book. That summer I spent months researching everything I could about Native American culture, then created projects for kids that make the history and culture come alive. I enjoyed myself at powwows and dances all over the Southwest and in Idaho. One thing I love is frybread, and I found a quick way that kids can make it. Want to make clever silver and turquoise jewelry, in the preschool classroom? Think macaroni and foil, and a tissue tube! More Than Moccassins is full of supersimple ways that kids can learn and have fun at the same time. Oh, the book was a finalist for the Western Writers of America Golden Spur Award, and picked Buyer's Choice by the Museum Store Association.

Format: Paperback
A great book full of ideas for things to make or cook related to American Indians. Also includes details of traditional games as well as a bit of the meaning behind the various things you can make. A resource useful for any nursery or primary school teacher.

EXCELLENT! 15 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
More than Moccasins is this homeschooler's dream come true. Homeschooling a six year old, who is also a very hands-on learner, this book fits the bill. Each section, from Indian dwellings to pottery to traditional games, has activities that are fun and EASY TO DO! Very general household items can be turned into bakeable clay for pottery, teepees, etc. So many books with crafts require tedious materials that are difficult or cumbersome to obtain. Plus each section has a bit of information and history on that particular area of Native American culture ~ short enough for the younger set but detailed enough to provide accurate historical information to go along with the project. There are MORE activities, games, crafts and recipes than you could ever do in an entire unit. This is a book I will return to over and over. GREAT JOB!

Museum of Native American art 7 Sep 2002
By sandy807 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the best, most extensive book on Native American crafts for children I have ever seen. Teachers doing a unit on Native Americans will find this book a tremendous resource for creating all kinds of not authentic, but good semblances of Native American crafts. Using mostly ordinary materials, there's enough here that you can create a classroom museum and invite others to see it. In your display you can have: miniature teepees and wigwams, an "adobe" house, pottery, "bark" boxes (made of brown paper), chamois and bead pouch, coup stick, breechcloth, leggings, grass anklets (made of yarn), warbonnet, headband, breastplate, and much more. These clothing items can also be used in a play or other enactment. In addition, there are some interesting recipes, including: corn soup, steamed clover, fried squash blossoms, roasted pumpkin seeds, and other more familiar foods.

By Kameron Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a K teacher and I found this book a great resource for my Native American unit. It has so many activities for that could be used at any grade level! I learned many new things and loved that the children were making and learning about actual Native American games, garb and food. They loved it!
