I was given a collection of arrowheads found in the woods of upper Wisconsin. I had almost enough for every fourth grader. I supplemented the authentic arrowheads with hand-made ones from Oriental Trading Company so that each student could have one.
The arrowheads tied in perfectly with our fourth grade study of Native American art. The students wound thin wire around their arrowhead, leaving a long end to wrap around a length of suede. They added a symmetrical pattern of wooden beads to finish the piece.
