Harappan Bangles

This week we've been studying about the Harappans that lived in the Indus Valley around 2500 BC. Some of the Harappans were craftsmen making jewelry. Both men and women wore jewerly in this civilization.

So we decided to make our own bangles. I used a recipe for dough that was in Cameron's Hands on Math book.

Rolling the dough (or making snakes as the kids would say)
