Have templates available for students to use to help with the doll outline. Tell the students they are creating a representation of their character. They need to dress the doll appropriately for the journey north. You may want to show younger students how to cut fabric, make braids in hair, draw-in a face, attach accessories (backpack, pick, shovel, bundle of supplies, diary, etc). Set-up a table with fabric scraps, hair(yarn) and other shared items.
TEACHER NOTES: You may want to share photographs of real-life Stampeders to give them a better sense of what they wore to the Klondike. Try to include photographs of men, women, and children. Remind students to try and make their characters as true to life as they can.
