Hopewell 'Copper' Ornaments

The Fourth Grade have been learning about the mound builders.  The Native Americans lived in the USA from 100 BC to 300 AD.  They believed in an After Life and put riches in the mounds, including pieces of Art, like copper ornaments.  Most mounds were located in Ohio with some also in Indiana, Kentucky, and Pa.  The students learned to tool the metal and add a pantina.
