Boys: Group Totem Pole

My "Knights of the Round Table" Group loved this activity from Operation: Breaking the Boy Code by Dr. Poppy Moon.  The previous session we talked about "My Totem Animals" and the character traits each symbolize and made connections to personal experiences exemplifying the traits. This session each boy selected the one they most connected to and using the templates I premade traced, labeled and colored their own totem animals.  The members were excited I had a pole (2 cardboard packing materials) ready for them to attach their animals.  I have displayed it all week in my office and gotten to talk about the character traits to several other students. For example, the coyote is known for his cleverness.
