Several years ago I bought a pattern and several yards muslin from JoAnn Fabrics to make a tepee for my classroom. Needless to say, I ran out of time. I went to a Parent Group meeting and asked for a volunteer to help out. One of our wonderful parents came to my rescue. She cut out the pattern and sewed the tepee. I purchased six PVC pipes to become the tepee.
My students have worked in the tepee every year during the unit on Native Americans.
