Grace Bay Campus TCNM
The Grade Three class of The International School of the Turks and Caicos Islands, who are presently studying the Lucayan Indians, truly embraced the topic on their recent visit to the Museum’s Grace Bay Campus. The students were ably accompanied and assisted by their teachers Tracey Nesbit and Irene Danics.
The young Lucayans produced tools and jewelry referencing the displays at the museum and their text, all from materials found in the natural environment like sticks and conch shells.
We quickly found out that it took great skill to make tools that were functional. However, this very creative group was up to the challenge and succeeded in the end.
This was the first group of students to visit the Museum’s Grace Bay Campus, which is still in its developmental stage. I must say we all had great fun delving into the Lucayan history. We look forward to being a learning resource to more groups in the future.
