John Street School third and fourth graders learned how Native Americans lived on Long Island and enjoyed an interactive experience with Teepee Ted and the Wilderness Traveling Museum, from Oct. 27-28.

Inside the school’s gymnasium, animal skin and fur clothing, as well as bones, were on display for students to wear and touch. Outside in the courtyard, students played common Native games like corn tosses, races and stacking stones. A teepee was set up for the students to sit in and explore, as well. They also played drums and other instruments made from tree bark, gourds and other traditional objects.
