Elementary Field Trip: “Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean To Be Human?”

February 14, 2017

Earlier this month Diane Deedy, head of youth services at Norwich’s Otis Library, gave MDS Upper Elementary students and directress, Tara Rodriguez, a great tour of the traveling Smithsonian exhibit, “Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean To Be Human?”

After the tour, the students were free to experience the exhibit on their own and were asked to focus on their knowledge of fundamental needs of people and to bring back “1 Fun Fact” to the class. At the end of the outing the students were able to by handle replicas of the various hominid skulls.
