By viewing artifacts, students will connect directly with history. Students will discover that people living on Martha’s Vineyard in the 19th century visited and explored all parts of the world as part of their livelihood. They returned to the island with gifts, tools and objects from faraway places. This activity is aimed at giving students an opportunity to carefully observe images of artifacts and then share what they know with their classmates in a fun way!
