Matryoshka Dolls

In groups, students made a set of 5 nesting dolls (Matryoshka) while studying Russia since these dolls are commonly found there. Each student made their own stacking doll but each group had a theme. Each doll also had a piece of culture on it; (icon, ballet, Faberge egg, oriental rug or samovar). Once the dolls were complete, each student wrote a "blended" story about which Russian city their doll came from (see handout) and included information about the city such as landmarks, terrain and climate.
