From Archaeological studies to sand in their toes: fifth grade spring trip!

Posted on

The fifth grade spring trip was to Neah Bay and the surrounding area. The group visited with elders from the Makah tribe who shared some of their heritage including the basics of cedar bark basket weaving, artifacts from the Ozette archaeological site and their whaling heritage. Other fifth grade experiences included the Elwha damn site, setting up tents, sand in their shoes, tide pooling, sea anemone, hermit crabs, and star fish, sand dollars, sea gulls, bald eagles, deer, brazen chipmunks, making and eating sandwiches, smores, fires on the beach, running, cartwheels, and walking down the trail, sharing, laughing, reflecting, and looking at sunsets. What a wonderful, memorable trip. Enjoy the beautiful photos!
