Student Grant Recipients Total: 39
Award Amount: approximately $220
The 3rd grade students went on a field trip to Burke Museum this June. EE STARS was able to award 42% of this 3rd graders' field trip to Burke Museums this June by funding the mileage and driver costs of approximately $220. Each student's family was asked to contribute $10, with the option of a donation for a child who cannot afford the field trip fee to cover the entrance fee of $150 per class for this educational experience that enriches 3rd grade curriculum.
During the museum tour students will explore the living Native American traditions of fishing and weaving, techniques of basket making and carving, and the significance of stories and ceremonies using the museum’s collection of artifacts and art. Students will work in small groups to explore the exhibits and also make a Native American craft to take home.
This tour will help students build background knowledge about various Native American cultures and traditions. All third grade students write an information report about a Native American tribe so this trip builds a hands-on understanding of the various tools and artifacts used in the daily lives of Native Americans. Students will appreciate the link between Native American cultures and the skillful use of natural resources.
