worldtourSamantha Bowman, a seventh-grader at St. Stanislaus School in Meriden, describes artifacts on loan from the New Britain Youth Museum to first graders during a recent World Tour Exhibition at the school. Sixth- through eighth-grade students took an item or artifact from another nation to school along with an international food or beverage. The exhibition was open to parents, teachers and all students. The middle school students gave tours of the exhibit. The museum loaned an array of items from around the world, including a Chinese dragon mask, cowrie shells from Africa, lederhosen from Bavaria and coconut shell bowls from Brazil. (Photo submitted)
