Wilson Students Visits Sheboygan County Historic Museum
Fourth grade students at Wilson Elementary School recently spent the day at the Sheboygan County Historic Museum learning about the life of Native Americans living in Sheboygan County over 100 years ago.
During their visit, students experienced living skills such as lashing, basket weaving, arrow and spear making, and corn grinding as well as entertainments and past times like making cornhusk dolls and reed flutes. In addition, the students toured the displays of Native American artifacts and sat in an authentically constructed birch bark lodge.

Lindy Paulsen navigate the intricacies of basket weaving. At the end of
the day, each classroom was allowed to take one of the completed
baskets back to school for their classroom.
