Native American Studies Get Creek View Students Trading

Fourth grade students took part in a traditional potlatch

Fourth grade students at Creek View Elementary School in Alpharetta concluded their Native American unit by participating in a traditional potlatch.

The idea for the celebration comes from the Native Americans of the Northwest region of the United States. The children each created items ranging from origami figures to duct tape wallets. After meeting in the cafeteria, each child was able to window shop other classmates items and trade just like the Native Americans.

Does your school have something you'd like to share with the community? Post an announcement on Alpharetta-Milton Patch, and don't forget the photos!
