4th & 5th Graders Inaugurate Lewis & Clark Activity Day

After Covid forced the 4th and 5th grades to cancel their Montana trip, they got to participate in the first “Lewis & Clark Activity Day” on campus. In the morning, they made clay sculptures and paintings styled after Western artist Charlie M. Russell, including coloring parts of a large mural inspired by one of his paintings of the L & C expedition. In the afternoon, they portaged canoes, recorded specimens of vegetation, constructed gifts for trading, and designed a floating raft — all activities that were done on the expedition.
