Together with Museum staff and artist Libby Gerber, 7th grade students from Barnhart School explored the influence of nature on ancient civilizations. By studying Aztecan, Incan, and Mayan cultures and by exploring Ancient Latin American artifacts in the Museum's Visible Vault, students discovered the importance of nature, both in ancient and modern times. Their learning was made visible through a student-designed, hand-painted mural, and also through personalized collages and poetry that expressed the relationship between nature and their own identities.
