Native American Games

The Landrum Library Home school class was about Native American children's games.  Ms. Nancy had different stations set up in the room for the children to make a variety of games.  She explained the purpose of each game and had the children play the game.  It was a small class and they had a delightful time.

The shell game forced the child to focus on an object.

 The firewood stealing game forced the blindfolded child to use her sense of hearing and the child stealing the wood to be quiet and quick.

 Ball rolling made the child learn to be accurate.

 The ball and hole games made the child focus on hand and eye coordination.

The pattern game made the child focus and use memory recall.
