Local Fourth Graders Visit the Museum

About 50 Fourth Graders from Oakhurst Elementary recently visited the Museum. The students took a step into history, and were led on tours of the two main buildings of the Museum, the Barn and the Adobe.

The group was divided into smaller groups that rotated between fun and educational games and activities. The children enjoyed making rope, grinding corn like the Native Americans did, working with leather, and crafting wooden medallions. One group played a game of Corn Shot in the meadow. Here are photos of some of the activities that day.
