K Maasai necklaces

Learning about different cultures has lead the Kindergartners to explore the fabulous jewelry of the Maasai.  This is a group of people from East Africa.  They are semi-nomadic and well known for their distinct lifestyle including their customs and their dress.  We discussed their dress, especially their ornamentation with jewelry.  We studied the geometric shapes, the pattern and the symmetry seen in these elaborate necklaces.  Check out the Kindergartners take on the Maasai necklace.  Great job, sweet friends!
