Learn about Native Americans, the Florida Panhandle's original residents, and Pioneers. The tour will explore the similarities and differences between these two groups and how technology and our lifestyles have changed over the years. Students will also have self-guided time in the Discovery room, a hands-on area where students can experience a model one-room schoolhouse, store, and an archaeology dig.
Activities to accompany this tour include pinchpots, paper dolls, and designing your own pioneer-style quilt.
A lot has changed in the Panhandle since the Native Americans first got here, and in this tour students will learn how technology was developed and used by pioneers and during WWII. This tour includes aspects of history and focuses mainly on the use of simple machines.
Students will make catapults using popsicle sticks, rubber bands, and spoons to have hands-on learning with simple machines.
