Home / Getting to know us / 6th graders Built their own museum in History Class

 

The students have been working on building a stone age museum for the last two weeks. This week they are giving tours to faculty and parents during the different class periods. The museum covers all three stone ages Paleolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic eras. They have incorporated cave art, different dwellings, agriculture, tools, weapons, and how things have evolved throughout time. The museum starts with a primitive cave and bone tools and travels through old, middle, and new stone ages ending with systematic agriculture and Terrace farming.
The best part about this entire project was that it was completely student-run. Ms. Bosch started the idea but as they sat down and came up with ideas they directed where and how they wanted their museum to grow.
