New Educational Activities at the Remick Museum
There are four new educational blocks to try at the Remick:
General Store and Trading Post—Students will learn about bartering and credit at the general store. While role playing they will be able to shop off the shelves of the store and decide what is needed versus what is wanted. Trade routes, lack of common currency, the need for a social gathering spot and the importance of the store owner will be discussed.
Building a Community—What do natural resources, geography and people have in common? The success or demise of a community! Students will decide where buildings, roads and certain jobs should be located on our 3-D community. As resources, technology and population change so do the buildings, needs and location of the community. No two classes will build the same one!
Livestock—Did you know that footballs were originally made from pig’s bladders? Students will learn to identify the different animals on the farm, their multiple uses, and the care and maintenance these animals need. A hands-on activity will reinforce vocabulary using farm-related props.
Sewing Skills—Students will learn about the history of needles and thread and how the mechanization of them has changed sewing, and how sewing, in turn, has helped form civilization itself. Several types of stitches, thread and needles will be discussed. They will learn how the invention of the sewing machine has changed our lives and made fashion mass produced and affordable. Students will learn 3 stitches and create a felted money/cell phone holder.
