Cornshuck Dolls

Students are shown examples of dolls from the Appalachian mountains area. Using corn, they trim as many shucks as they need and soak them in water. Using the shucks, they follow a set of instructions to make a cornshuck doll. To end the lesson, they draw a face on their doll and share them with the class.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
