Lenape Life

One of our 3rd grade classrooms is now a "Lenape Village of 500 Years Ago." 

The students self-selected an area of expertise to teach to others about the Lenape Village/Culture. They did the research, wrote their facts and scripts, practiced with their group, collaborated in building, and had a great time! The various stations around the room were wigwam and cordage, gardening, hunting, cooking, family, overview/introduction, and fire making.

The response from guests was terrific. The students took ownership of their stations and showed great pride in sharing their knowledge with others.

Here is a photo from a visit with the Norwood family, who presented a music and dance program and talk about contemporary Lenape culture.
