Cultural Studies Class Makes Guatemalan Worry DollsCultural Studies class has been learning about global issues. They watched a documentary about poverty in Guatemala and made Guatemalan Worry Dolls. Guatemalan Worry Dolls originated in Mayan history. The legend is that if you are kept awake at night because of your worries and stresses, you can tell them to your Worry Doll and they will take your worries and stress away so you can get a good night's sleep.
