Native American Dreamcatchers

Because the students are learning about Native Americans in their homeroom classes, we’re taking a closer look at Native American art.  The main concept students have learned is that Native Americans do not create art for art’s sake.  Everything has a purpose; it just so happens that those practical things are beautiful works of art.  One of those things is the dreamcatcher.  They create dreamcatchers to hang over the bed.  The web in the center catches and hangs onto bad dreams while the good dreams slide right down the feathers and land softly on your pillow.
