My Fairbanks part of the trip was a very worthwhile visit. I learned a great deal of what is to come this summer. The museum at the university was great. They teach a detailed history of the many native cultures. I was also able to spend my money on some excellent books to be used in my classroom. Upon my return Mrs. Feldman and Mrs. Murray helped the class build a totem and work on Arctic carvings (a few Antarctic also). As a result of my Fairbanks visit we will be studying more of the Arctic explorers as well as key ideas and facts about Alaska. Next journal entry will be when I return in June. Stay tuned+ICYgJg
The following pictures are some of the exhibits at the museum at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, and of my 5th grade class in the Butterfield School.
