Abbey Lane Students Explore Native American Culture
As part of their curriculum on native culture, fourth grade students at Abbey Lane Elementary School received a visit from the educational program, Journeys Into American Indian Territory,on Oct. 16 and 17.
The in-house field trip allowed students to learn more about Native American culture with the help of presenters from the organization. During the first day, classes learned about native culture through the exploration of artifacts, film, popular stories and games. The following day, the students learned about the Iroquois government and put their creativity to the test by working on their own clay pots and a symbol project.
