Native American Sand Painting

Children write Navajo journals pretending to be a Native American for four days. Student then begin their art project. After lightly penciling in their sketch of the land and environment of the Navajo, the students receive brown construction paper cut to about 6x8 inches. The children recreate their sketches and design original journal covers for their writing. Tempera paints are used. When dry, the brown paper gives the impression a hide has been painted.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
