TES students experience native culture on playground encampment
By Linda Green

The 520 students of Thomson Elementary School received experiential learning as their playground was turned into a Native American village on March 14.
The students sat in the playground’s center for a pow wow to hear and witness a demonstration from Little Big Mountain and Laura Alcorn.
Backed by a large teepee, mounted furs, native wear, instruments, artifacts and utensils, which symbolized a living history encampment, Little Big Mountain taught the students how to say hello and also dispelled myths about native people that they may have seen on television.
For the entire story, pick up a copy of the March 20 edition of The McDuffie Progress.
