Get hands on with history and learn how our ancestors lived and thrived during Adventure: Native Americans with Elkhart County Parks Monday.
Starting at 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20 at the Downtown library, Krista Daniels, interpretive naturalist for Elkhart County Parks will lead hands-on active lessons about the Potawatomi native tribe lived.
“We’ll talk about what life would have been like then, how it’s different now,” she said. “We talk about how they survived.”
Daniels said that the program is great for children that learn through participatory activities.
“It’s a good one for kids that needs that active piece in learning,” she said.
“We think it’s really important to have that hands-on.”
If the weather allows, Daniels will lead the group outside to demonstrate fire-starting techniques.
She said that the class is a good way to way to get children learning about the history of their local area.
“It helps introduce the history of our area in a general way,” she said. “They get to hear part of our history in a different way.”
