third-grade students had a chance to get out of the classroom Wednesday and explore artifacts at .
While visiting Rochester's Dinosaur Hill, students learned about the culture of Native Americans who settled in Michigan, including their eating habits, clans, babies, what seasons meant for them and how they survived on a day-to-day basis. Students had the opportunity to ask questions, touch and even try to use many of the artifacts on display.
According to third-grade teacher Karen Holdren, the field trip is an annual event for third-grade students at Musson. Part of their curriculum entails learning about Native Americans and Michigan history, Holdren said.
“Anything that they get to do that’s hands-on, that’s the key,” Holdren said. “Then they really get to experience what it felt like in that culture.”
