So in the Neanderthal museum, Addie was honored, she told us, to “carry the fire”. This was her favorite part of the day.
For me, this one- throwing a spear? Addie? Like a hunter? Holy cow- I can’t imagine the kids getting to do that on a class trip in the US. Someone might sue for tripping on a stone when they ventured outside.
The class learned how cave drawings were made, what they are interpreted to mean now, how the Neanderthals lived and died, and how very changed the world has become.
Time to go grab Addie’s suitcase….
