E.T. A LOCAL WAY OF LEARNING


Title: MAKE A MANGO DOLL

Author: Ruth Emery Eulalie R. Rivera Elementary School

Grades: 2-5

Concepts: Disciplines:
6. Resources 1.Art
8. Attitudes and Values 2.Social Studies

Objective:

Student will make a mango doll from the seed of the mango.

Rationale:

Many years ago on St. Croix, children made dolls from mango seeds.It is a
creative activity using simple natural materials.

Materials Needed:
One large mango fruit (A ripe mango is best) /
Four match sticks or tooth picks
Crayons
Pieces of cloth

Directions/Activity
Wash the mango seed. Put it in the sun to dry for about four or five days.
After it is white and clean, comb out the fibers to make the "hair" for your doll. Stick a
match stick in each side of the seed for hands. Stick a match stick in the bottom for each
leg. Makes holes in the face for eyes, ears, and nose, or you can paint them in. Now dress
your doll.

Discuss:
How life style has changed. People years ago made do with simple things found
in the environment. People now buy plastic/rubber dolls using scarce resources
(petroleum and rubber). Ask if the children have done some similar creative
things and share such experiences in a show/tell time.
