This week we began a unit on Native Americans.  We learned that many Native American names where given to children using animals, nature, or natural abilities a child had, or wanted to have.  Students chose names for themselves and shared their reasons for their choices.  I now have a Cheetah Legs, Rabbit Boy, Earth Boy, Cheetah Girl, Tree Bear, Lion Hawk, Arrow Boy, Risky Wolf, Moon Boy, and Sunset Watcher in my class.  What name would you choose for yourself?
