HAVE A LOOK INSIDE!
Each year Mrs. Avnor's classroom does The Culture Box Exchange. We send in little artifacts from where we are and they send in artifacts from where they are too. This year they sent in artifacts from Alaska. We got so many cool things from them! They sent raw goods like salmon, and even a tire! They brought in their favorite books and a hockey puck. This was an amazing social studies experiment. By Joe M.
The first thing we got was a boot that they use to track through the snow.
The second thing we got was one tire that they use for their bikes when it is snowy. The tire has studs on it to create friction.
The third thing we got was a book that talks about their city.
The fourth thing was a shirt that had a picture of their school mascot.
The fifth thing was mountain goat wool. It had a lot of things in the wool.
