Express team spirit and unique personal style! Students create replicas of a traditional totem poles as a get-to-know-you project!
Totem poles are traditional among Native American clans who live along the Northwest Pacific Coast of what is now the United States and Canada. Invite students to research how totem poles are carved. Investigate some of the traditional images used, such as ravens, beavers, whales, and thunderbirds. Many symbols signify characteristics of which families are proud.
With a small group of classmates, discuss interests, skills, and favorites to discover common themes, such as soccer, dogs, video games, or crafting. Students sketch possibilities for symbols to represent the team’s ideas with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.
Together, decorate one small snack tube with Crayola Model Magic. Use symbols for the common themes team members discovered about each other. Mix colors if you like, or knead just a little for a marbled effect. Model Magic fresh from the pack sticks to itself.
Team members each personalize a totem pole section on separate snack tubes. Encourage students to display favorite things to express individuality!
Place small rings of Model Magic between sections. Stack them on top of each other and press together to make one totem. In the oral tradition, explain Team Totem to other teams in the class.
