We will learn all about flint, how it was formed, & its properties; as well as about the American Indians who used this precious stone. Each day we will spend time learning the ancient skill of flint knapping ( shaping a piece of flint into a tool), creating fire using flint & steel, & playing games that connect us to the land. By the end of the week you will have a new respect for American Indians & for flint.
