The children looked at various tribes who live in the rainforest. Our outdoor play area included an area about the tribes, The matis, Jaguar people, we made red masks and put leaves on strings to wear. We used recycled items from the box to represent spears and pretended to hunt for food. The children also pretended to be the Yanomami, and made a shabono ring shaped house with crates and boxes, they also used a bread crate and straws to create a thatched roof. Later in the week we pretended to be The Riberenos, they travelled in hand carved canoes. We made a canoe out of a very large box, we painted it brown and put it in the jungle on a blue tarpauling to represent the Amazon. Another group had to build Riberenos house on stilts over the Amazon using various materials.
