Fourth graders at Accompsett Elementary School participated in a day of hands-on learning activities thanks to a program from Journeys Into American Indian Territory. The lessons were a perfect pairing with the fourth grade social studies unit on the Eastern Woodlands. 
After a grade level assembly, students broke up into different learning stations for the hands-on portion of the day. The students examined Native American artifacts, walked through a longhouse and learned about the hunting ways of the men in the tribes. They also learned the role of the women and children, and about the tools they used for making clothing.
The Native American children had a bit of fun. The Accompsett students listened to different tales of the tribe while sitting on deerskin rugs and also tried some of the different Native American games.

Mrs. Hennessy and Mr. Pelosi’s class heard about a 104-year-old veteran living in California who was asking for Valentine’s cards. The class learned about Major Bill White, and how he fought in Iwo Jima during World War II. The students sent messages filled with positive thoughts and thanked him for his bravery and service to the country.
