They are going to look at some pictures of real-life teepees, learn some interesting facts about
teepees and then they will make their own teepee similar to the ones lived in by the Lakota

2. Presentation of New Information or Modeling:

(e.g., term definitions, concepts, processes and/or approaches)
Time: 10 minutes
The teacher will begin the lesson by opening up the PowerPoint and showing students the

The teacher will take out her half circle and sticks, similar to what the students will use to make
their own teepee.
The teacher will follow each step that the students will follow. These steps are listed on the
