Bring your natural curiosity and craftiness into FREE live learning sessions by Penn Museum educators. Every Tuesday, join these 30-minute sessions—perfect for kids in elementary to middle school—to dig deeper into world cultures, archaeology, and anthropology with demonstrations of hands-on projects you can try at home!
Artifacts tell many stories about the people who made, owned, or used them. Personal items, like shoes, travel with a person as they journey through life. Just think how your shoes tell a story of where you have been and where you are going!
Learn about the history of sewn footwear through a careful study of moccasins. Look closely at several pairs to see if you can identify the materials used and discover more about how they are made. Gain a deeper understanding of their history and connection to many Native American nations by creating your own unique footwear design alongside a Museum educator.
Recommended Materials: Paper and pencils, crayons, or markers.
