This past Friday we went on our first field trip of the year. We went to the Stuhr Museum and learned about the Pawnee Indians. The children got to visit a tepee, an earth lodge, see a buffalo, and put up and take down a tepee. In the earth lodge we learned about how the Pawnee Indians lived. The students got to try on Pawnee hunting gear and clothes, try out their games, and see how they made their food.
Trying on a Pawnee girl outfit.
Passing around hard cloth that the Pawnee Indians used for their clothes.
Trying on a wolf skin. This is what the Pawnee Indians put over their heads when they were going hunting.

Sitting on a bed that the Pawnee Indians would have slept on. The beds were made out of soft animal skins.
