Animal Dance

This Animal Dance lesson plan also includes:

The image Painting of Bear and Sun Dances by Louis Fenno contains an image of a traditional Ute dance. The class will hone their observation skills, as well as their ability to describe in detail, as they take a close look at the piece. Pupils will work together as they compare and contrast the top and bottom halves of the painting and use what they see to create their own versions of a traditional animal dance.
