Second graders in Andrea Morelli’s class at Kramer Lane Elementary in the Bethpage Union Free School District participated in Nassau BOCES’ Colonial Crafts program on Nov. 8. BOCES naturalists Mary Watros and Bette Bass taught the students about pioneer life hundreds of years ago and brought the supplies to make corn husk dolls. Using just corn husks, yarn and some fabric, the students made their own Colonial-style dolls. 

The activity came just in time for Thanksgiving, and the students were excited to have their families use the handmade dolls as decorations. The district thanks Nassau BOCES and the instructors for facilitating this lesson.
