St. Andrew’s students visited the Native American Museum created and hosted by the 5th grade class on Friday October 27th. Students learned about various tribes and their customs, visited a Native American habitat, explored man-made tools, and even sampled cuisine. A creative and fun hands-on lesson for the curators and visitors alike!
