Wrapping up at The Rooms

Parents volunteers are awesome
On Tuesday morning, I had my last Open Minds classroom visit of the year at The Rooms and I'm looking forward to next year.  The ground stone or ulu making sessions have been really popular with the kids.  I like doing the flintknapping demonstrations, but there are some real memorable learning opportunities  when the kids get to work with their hands and create something that they can keep.  Its much safer and easier to do that with ground slate instead of knapping stone or glass. We sure get dusty though!

Discussing what they learned.
