Human History by the Sea: Exploring Early Human Experience

Recently, our bright and eager Lower Elementary Upstairs students delved deep into their knowledge of human history in order to glean a visceral understanding of the early human experience.

Following our study of the Third Great Lesson, the Coming of Human Beings, we took our learning outdoors to the beach! There, the children were encouraged to explore and collect materials to help them build their own shelters. They were enthusiastic to construct their dwellings, with their biggest challenge being the absence of verbal communication. The students adapted well, by quickly learning that they could communicate like the early humans may have done, by using different sounds and signals. The beach was alive, with plenty of gestures, squawks, cries, squeaks, moans and groans!
