Copeland Elementary visits Mount Airy museum

Second graders from Copeland Elementary School recently visited the Mount Airy Museum for the Meet Me at the Wigwam: A Native American Experience.

Students were able to view a typical Southeastern Native American dwelling as they learned about the culture of the Sauras, the Native Americans who inhabited this region. They were able to view the types of items inside and outside of their bark hut, and discuss the importance of these items for everyday use.

Students participated in games the children played, and listened to stories and legends the Eastern Woodland Native Americans would tell their children. Afterward, students enjoyed lunch at Chick-Fil-A and getting some fresh air and playtime at Riverside Park.
