Mrs. Legge’s Grade 5 class has been learning a lot about Indigenous and First Nations Cultures as well as the Truth & Reconciliation Commission. Their latest project that combined their efforts in art and social studies was related to totem poles. Check out some samples!
My totem pole reflects my family on what we do the ring and the stick for me because i play ringette and i enjoy it a lot . The game controller for my brother because he plays video games way too much but he loves it . A book for my sister because she studies way too hard for exams and essays . A shirt from for my mom because she works at a clothing shop . A brick for my dad because he scaffolds
For my totem pole, I did my family as a weird, kinda funny family. On the top I have my mom, she’s a fox. (Hard to tell am I right :3) I put her as a fox, because foxes can be really happy, and lovable. But, they can also be very dangerous!! >.< You don’t want to run into a stray. Then, I have my dad! 😛 My dad’s a very funny, goofy, kind of person! 😀 He is “The Cool Dude”. (Not really xD) After that is…. MY BROTHER!!! DUN DUN DUN!! My brother is one word a T.R.O.L.L., Totally Radical On Little Ladybugs….. I just made that up 0.o He’s awesome but, annoying at times. As all brothers like to do, he bugs me until I just want to wrestle him. (Which I do ^_- ) That’s all I have on my totem pole! Hope you like it.
This is my totem pole, I put the cat because. The cat is cute and has sharp claws, I put the cat because, the cat is so fluffy, And the cat can climb up on any high natures or buildings, like. Trees, walls, chairs, and stuff. Then I’m describing the snake because, the snake can be really sneaky. And the snake has a gorgeous skin patterns. Then, I was supposed to put an lynx, because. Lynx looks like a cat. But, the lynx is more bigger than a cat and lynx is a gorgeous cats in the wild animals. Then, the next one. I was supposed to put an butterfly, because. Butterflies has pretty wings, they can fly where ever they want and their foods are the flowers (which is pretty cool). And, the lost one I want to put on the totem poles was. A wolf, because wolves ran fast, they hunt fast, but they are kind of dangerous because, wolves can smell bloods pretty good. And they have a pretty gorgeous eyes! Even there pups (wolves) is really cute!
