With Brandon and Chase in town I thought this would make a great day trip (and an educational one, too!). Anywhere I can squeeze in learning, you bet I'll take advantage of teaching the kids.
They had plenty of hands-on activities. Look for yourselves...
Joshua and Chase are grinding corn to make flour for supper later on.
A giant puzzle of North America showing where the tribes lived with images of the different types of homes they made.
Here are all the kids posing! We were able to watch a video of an Indian tribe in action. How they built winter and spring wigwams, how to make baskets out of tree bark, women vs. men traditions and how to fish. Most of the kids said that this was their favorite part of the museum.
The tee pee was a lot of fun for the kids to put together. Once they were able to get it to stand correctly, the kids went in, out and around playing with their new home.
David was a special treat!!
We will be going back again this fall!!
