The Hopkins Museum of Culture is having its grand opening in a few weeks! The first exhibit will be on indigenous (native) cultures around the world, and you (yes, you!) have been hired as a curator for one of the displays. The Museum’s Director – none other than your esteemed teacher – will assign you a tribe to research. You will then select an artifact that represents an element of that tribe’s culture, create a representation of that artifact for the museum exhibit, and write an explanation of the artifact to inform our museum visitors of its cultural significance.
You will spend the Day 1 researching with the library databases and filling out your Culture Chart.
You will spend Day 2 identifying an artifact and filling out your Artifact Research Chart.
