3-D Social Studies!
Our class has been studying about the Native Americans in
, or the 4 C’s (Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek). We studied where they lived and their trading routes. The students chose a tribe and era and made a 3-D picture with a short summary of how they lived. The students all had to draw their own pictures and cut them out. They folded about ¼ inch down on the bottom of each picture to glue it to the background. Alabama
To make the background…
- Fold a sheet of construction paper into a triangle, so that you can cut off the extra so that you turn an 8 x 11 sheet into a square.
- Fold the square so that your fold creases make an X across the paper.
- Cut from one corner to the center.
- Gently overlap the cut pieces so that the paper makes a 3-D triangle.
