As part of their study on the first Americans, fourth-grade students at W.S. Mount Elementary School had an opportunity to learn about Native Americans during a hands-on workshop called Journey Into Native American Territory.

The program brought the history and lives of the Eastern Woodlands people into the classroom through visual presentations and group activities. 

Throughout the two-day program, students were able to travel through a museum of artifacts and learn how to play traditional games that encouraged teamwork and honed survival skills. Additionally, students learned about Native American government and created clay duck decoys using traditional techniques and materials. Throughout the museum tour, the students took an up-close look at animal pelts, musical instruments, traditional clothing, athletic equipment and hunting tools.
