Students learn about Native American culture.

Fourth-graders at Joseph A. Edgar School recently learned about Native American history and culture in their Social Studies classes.

During their Journey Into American Indian Territories program, presenters spoke with the students about the physical environment that the Eastern Woodlands Indians lived in before European contact and the survival techniques developed by the Algonquian and Iroquoi Indians.

Throughout the day-long, in-house field trip, the students visited a museum of artifacts that included musical instruments, traditional clothing and hunting tools, as well as a replica longhouse set up in the school’s old gym.

They also played Native American children’s games, which encouraged teamwork and honed survival skills, and learned how to shape different clay animals.
