Native American Legends: Dragonfly's Tale, Antelope Woman, How the Stars Fell into the Sky

Love this classic Waldorf second grade block! All of my notes for planning & teaching Native American Legends are on my Waldorf Curriculum website, plus lists of the books that I haven't used yet but would like to in the future.



If you want to be able to make beautiful biome maps of North America, invest in the Waseca Biomes North America Stencil and Map Legend Stamp.

For a less expensive route that will give you the biomes of North America AND all of the other continents besides, the Complete Set of Control Charts for the Biome Puzzles is just $25.00.

Antelope Woman

    a wonderful exploration for this would be a nature walk or a hike

This is one of my favorite biomes! My first job out of college was teaching on the Navajo Reservation with Americorps. If you read The Goat in the Rug, follow it up with plant dyeing wool roving or yarn. I find crockpot dyeing to be the easiest way!

If you are studying the Havasupai people, you will definintely want to read Grand Canyon by Jason Chin.

Another wonderful book for bringing the desert biome to life, specifically the Sonoran Desert, is Cactus Hotel by Brenda Z. Guiberson. The Apache were one of the Native people in this area.
