Then, the students rotated through seven centers; eating fry bread and beef jerky, making and decorating several crafts such as canoes, headdress, navajo rugs, bear rattles, and a dictionary with Native American terms.  Thank you to the many parents in the audience for attending the play and several who stayed to help with the centers.  It was a BIG success and the students had a blast.  Tomorrow they will give oral reports on the mini Native homes they constructed at home and brought in today for observation.
