Third Grade Native American Studies

Third grade has been busy in the maker space this month! Third graders were presented with this driving question: how can we as museum curators inform and educate others about Native American cultures past and present? A primary goal of this unit and project is to debunk common stereotypes associated with Native Americans. Each child researched, planned, designed, and built an exhibit that reflects an aspect of Native American life. Some examples of exhibits include an doll clothed in authentically designed Inuit clothing, a bow and arrow that Apache children might have practiced using, and a model of a Comanche home.

The museum will be open to the public in The Katz Gallery from November 29th until December 8th
