|Second Graders at Inwood|
The boys have been studying the ways of the Lanape through our partnership with the New-York Historical Society for the past several weeks now. The trip was a planned chance to link their classroom studies to physically engaging experiences.
To prepare for this trip, in addition to critiquing artifacts with N-YHS curators and studying texts, second graders built their own longhouses and wigwams in class (photo below), and explored the various ways the Lenape were a resourceful people.

The day was a success: imagine the boys' delight when they saw an actual wigwam and were able to explore caves!

Saint David's looks for every opportunity to connect boys' classroom learning with tangible experiences that reinforce, contextualize, and extend learning.
