5th grade trip

On Friday, September 16th, Fifth Grade students from Lee County Elementary attended a Living Archaeology Weekend at the Gladie Visitor Center in the Red River Gorge. The event hosts several demonstrators who present information on both Native American and Pioneer living. Students had the opportunity to learn about tools, food, and other aspects of Pioneer life in Appalachia. Students participate in hands on activities such as spear throwing, creating mats out of cattails, skinning a deer hide, and more. In addition, students were able to tour and learn information about the Historic Gladie Cabin, a landmark built in the 1870s. Students and staff had a fantastic time and learned a lot about life way back when. A special thanks to our fantastic bus drivers, Wendell Brandenburg and Brad Kirby, for navigating us through the narrow roads in the gorge.
