Students at Barboursville School Study Native American Culture and Language
During the month of February, the students at Barboursville School studied a variety of American Indian Nations.
Tasks included researching traditions, history, locations, significant people, and notable events such as The Trail of Tears.
Students learned many Native American words and symbols.
Using these symbols our scholars constructed a NATIVE AMERICAN QUILT. The quilt featured the names of tribes
across the United States, pictographs and the meaning of the pictograph. Each student was given a quilt piece to draw and
label a Native American symbol. We “stitched” together our quilt pieces using Stitch Witchery and hung the finished article
up for display.
