Alaska State Museum to host Thanksgiving recess youth activity Tuesday

The Alaska State Museum will host a free youth activity, “Alaska Action Figures,” on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at the museum.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about Alaska Native culture, history and technology by creating miniature human figures and replicas of traditional tools and clothing like those on display at the museum.

Two workshops will be offered on Tuesday: the workshop for grades K–2 will run from 12:45 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., and the workshop for grades 3–5 will run 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Families with children in both age groups may choose to bring their students to either one of sessions.

Admission to both workshops is free. Pre-register by calling the Alaska State Museum at 465-2901, Monday-Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The combined classes will serve 60 students.

This activity is funded in part by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenue and the Friends of the Alaska State Museum.
