Talking Sticks

Talking Sticks

The talking stick is used in many Native American traditions. Whoever holds the stick has the right to talk.  The talking stick is used to make sure that each person in a group has a chance to express his or her own thoughts. Everyone else has to show respect and remain silent. When the speaker is finished talking, he or she passes the stick.

My 2nd graders created beautiful sticks with wire, chenille stems, beads, feathers and paint to be used as their own talking sticks.

    This is a great project! I love how you could incorporate classroom management into this lesson. I might make do a collaborative project making a large talking stick for my art room! Thanks!
