Hello November –

Greetings from the Sheridan County Museum. Now…who is ready for Thanksgiving?! Make sure you mark your calendars that November 28th is Turkey (or maybe you’re a ham person) day! Before the feasting begins we have some exciting things coming up at the museum….

Tidbit Saturday!

 Tidbit is held at the Sheridan County Museum at 10am, unless otherwise stated. The tidbit program consists of a featured book read and a lesson with an activity for children of all ages. Parents/Guardians must remain with their kiddos. 

November 16:
Come explore Archaeology! We will learn about the types and uses of stone tools for hunting, food preparation, etc. We’ll also have an exciting activity to do thanks to CRA’s Archaeologist!

December 14:
This old fashioned Christmas Tidbit will start the day with kids learning about oranges, cloves, and traditional ornaments and turn into something wonderful!

Please ensure all children are signed
up by the Wednesday before Tidbit
so everyone can participate! 
*These are indoor activities*

  Conversations in History

November 13th at 10:30 am
at the HUB on Smith. 

 

Helen will be discussing the Churches of early Sheridan. This series is free and open to the public.

Did you know that the museum has an Amazon Smile charity list? In it we have a host of items that we could use at the museum! 

This month we’re requesting donated books from our list. Reading is an important part of children’s development and these books will be used during the museum’s Tidbit programming.

Between the ages of four and nine, your child will have to master some 100 phonics rules, learn to recognize 3,000 words with just a glance, and develop a comfortable reading speed approaching 100 words a minute. He must learn to combine words on the page with a half-dozen squiggles called punctuation into something – a voice or image in his mind that gives back meaning. (Paul Kropp, 1996)

Lecture Series: Rosebud

November 14th at 6:30 pm 

Park Ranger Spencer Morris shares the history of the Rosebud Battle site. Ranger Morris will also discuss the important national designation of the park and what this means for its future.  

*The museum’s Lecture Series is $5.00 per person or free to current Sheridan County Museum and Sheridan County Historical Society members.
Lecture Series are held at the Sheridan County Museum. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

The museum will be closed on November 28
