Ancient Mayan Indian Unit: Wood Animalitos – Oaxacan (Mexican) Folk Art
We continued to read The Corn Grows Ripe (about a Mayan boy and his family) this week and talked about life Mexico.
We read about these imaginative creatures called Alebrijes at this art lesson plan website. In Mexico these are carved from one piece. Since we had lots of woodscraps (I bought lots of wood craft kits of cars, bird houses etc. for 50cents back in December), this seemed like the perfect craft for us!
