One of the subjects some of students were learning about was – “What is an artifact?” To help demonstrate what an “artifact” is the library table was laid out with several different objects. This provided a means for students to have a closer look and have an on hands experience. There was a great amount of student interest and discussion about each.
The students were separated and one group beginning the tour from the
Garret and the other at the Front Parlor
