Why Lesson Planet?
After reading a Native American legend about dreamcatchers, why not make some. This resource provides several good links that explain the legend of the dreamcatcher and step-by-step instructions for making them with the class. Tip: If you're short on materials, ask your local craft retailer if he has any unsaleable items such as ribbon or beads for donation. Ask a local Native American to come to class to share a local legend.
