Carol Shear’s third-grade class from Bird Rock Elementary went on a field trip to the Natural History Museum in Balboa Park on Oct. 28 and learned about the Kumeyaay Indian traditions.

Ms. Cindy from the museum and volunteer parents taught interactive lessons to the students about survival, trapping food, hand- molding pinch pots and painting art with clay and water, stripping yucca leaves for string, coloring leaf impressions on paper, mashing nuts with a mortar and pestle for food and other resourceful ways of Kumeyaay life in the wilderness.
