Overview:

In this video from PBSLearningMedia, students discover what happens when Molly's dog, Suki, finds a bone with beautiful markings on it in the 11-minute animated story “Suki's Bone” from the PBS KIDS series MOLLY OF DENALI™. (Move the cursor over the video progress bar to locate the story at 01:00.) After Grandpa Nat's archeologist friend confirms that the bone is an important Alaska Native artifact, Molly and her friends Tooey and Oscar think everything they find might belong in a museum! Integrating Alaska Native culture and history with informational text, the video shows how labels in museums help explain the exhibits, while Molly and her friends also learn about traditional Alaska Native games and tools.
