Timucua (Florida) or Creek (Georgia) Kids Creative Clans:

A Day of Educational Fun For Your students

 

Timucua or Creek Kids Creative Clans was written to give students information on how hard life was in early history.  The presentation lasts about one hour and is divided into three sections. The guide, in Native American clothing, discusses daily life in a Native American village, emphasizing the chores that the people did.   Students play a big part in this section as they answer questions orally. Each student is assigned to a Clan.

Second, the guide demonstrates the items that were used in a village and

tells the students why these items were needed.

Each student will see demonstrations in:

 

Corn shelling and grinding on small hollowed stumps

Weaving leather strips on native looms

Creating a decorated Shell Dish

Tattooing

(We are not facepainting due to some students reacting to the paint)

Native American toys and making a catch toy

Stringing Native American pendants for jewelry

Rope plying by hand

Animal Skins identifying

Stamping Clan Parchments

Rainsticks, Deer Hoof Rattles and more!

 

The third part allows each student to go to the stations where they will have a chance to actually do these tasks. All students are encouraged to try everything so that they will realize how hard it was to prepare food, make simple mats, dishes, etc.  Basically, we hope they will learn to appreciate what they may take for granted today!

 

Each classroom receives a parchment that the students stamp with their clan. Each student receives:

A toy that they make, a necklace, a shell dish and the rope that they make.  And they get great tattoos!

We have eliminated face painting due to some students having a reaction to the paint. If your school wants face painting you must buy the face paint. We can not be responsibble for any possible face paint reaction.
