: Hi, I am an Elementary education student who is teaching first graders about Native American beadwork in 45 minutes. I have searched the web looking for clues and not finding much,I'm not real real sure what I seeking but nothing has appealed to me so far. I have been instructed to ad-lib by coloring macaroni and having them construct their own necklace in class. But I do not know "WHY?" Why did and do Native Americans make these necklaces? Excuse me for being ignorant. I am just looking for a simple way to explain this to small people and hope that they will find value and meaning to it (within 45 min) I'd appreciate your help. Thanks, Jamie
