As a culmination to their lessons on the Iroquois and tribes native to the New York area, fourth-graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School participated in a day filled with hands-on activities by Journeys Into American Indian Territory on Feb. 4. The students began the day with a brief video presentation. The classes gathered to listen to presenters tell Native American stories, examined artifacts at a museum station and experienced life in a longhouse. They also participated in traditional Native American games, were taught how to throw spears and worked with clay.
