Third Grade Buffalo Skin Stories: Linguistic, Bodily-Kinesthetic, and Spatial!

After writing a narrative about Native Americans, our students used Native American symbols to create a buffalo skin story. Native Americans used buffalo skins to record symbols as a way to preserve their stories and history. Our third graders gave thoughtful consideration as to which symbols would be the best representation of their narrative. This activity allows students to bring together three intelligences to enhance their understanding of this subject: spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, and linguistic! Take a look at a few examples!
