Lewis Ginter Field Trip 3/23

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our awesome chaperones for making our field trip today such a success! Our class enjoyed an outdoor lesson learning all about the Powhatan Indians. We walked through a longhouse, touched agave fibers, wove reeds, planted corn, and so much more! The kids were read a traditional Powhatan story, explored the forest for natural resources, and touched so many items: deer antlers, turtle shells, squash, rabbit furs, and tree bark. After our class, we had a picnic lunch with the entire 2nd grade and explored the gardens. It was an awesome (and chilly) day! Here is our Google Photo album.
