Making Corn Husk Dolls
- Grade Level:
- Upper Elementary: Third Grade through Fifth Grade
- Social Studies
Students will learn how to make a corn husk doll, and then compare the toys they have with toys that children of the 19th century played with (and often made) as a daily life comparison. Corn was grown at Kingsley Plantation, and while it was used for food, other parts of the plant were useful too. Children back then would have had as much fun using their imaginations to make their toys as they did when playing with them!
