This fall, the sixth grade in Mr.Sam's class learned about the Iceman of the Alps (Otzi).
The Iceman was found in the Alps frozen in a glacier by Austrians in 1991. He was an important find for historians because he had a rare, valuable copper ax. His body was preserved for over 5000 years! Below are photos of the sixth grade with their homemade artifacts that relate to the Iceman's life. There was a variety of artifacts including: weapons, tools, and art.
Here are a couple quotes from students about what they thought about this activity.
"It was cool. I'm better with hands-on (activities) than with paper and pencil."
"It was helpful 'cause it was hands on. I like doing these types of projects."
