BHES students go back in time

Third-grade students at Bluffton-Harrison Elementary School spent about two weeks studying the history of Bluffton and Wells County, and as part of the 20 lessons, they created wampum, trinkets that Native Americans traded; studied about the first white child born in the county; created a report on the Miami Indians; and mapped with Play-Doh where Native Americans once lived.

Halley Clark and Preston Daughtery of Lisa Smith's class display their wampum

Lilly Bowman and Joseph Glaze of Linda Sturgeon's class show their illustration, which depicts the log cabin where the first white child born in the county, Elizabeth Miller, lived.

Emma Baumgartner and Ethan Hunt from Cara Crickard's class present their report on the Miami Indians.
