HSNY Field Trip: Museum of the City of New York

We had a wonderful time at MCNY with our homeschool group, learning about what New York was like in the time of Henry Hudson. The kids learned about what the homes of the Native Americans and the Dutch settlers were like, and made "delft tiles" depicting a scene from that era (using blue pencils on cardstock). They got to handle a few artifacts, such as a bedwarmer, candle mold, and water buckets with yoke.

This last one is my attempt at a tile... Mikro drew a deer and a tree, which is only recognizeable through doting mom glasses...
