STUDYING AMERICAN INDIAN CULTURES IN COOPERSTOWN

On Friday, October 17, 7th grade students traveled to Cooperstown, New York. They visited the Fenimore Art Museum to see the Eugene and Clare Thaw Collection of American Indian Art. This is a direct connection to the current study of American Indians of New York State in the 7th grade in the social studies curriculum. Students had a guided tour of the exhibit, held American indian artifacts, saw museum pieces from various cultures, toured the scenic grounds of the museum and entered a re-creation bark and long house. Students had a great time with these hands-on, experiential learning activities.
