Claremont School students build a wigwam
Students at the Claremont School in Ossining got a hands-on lesson about history today.
The fourth-grade class is creating a wigwam from scratch; similar to those lived in by Native Americans in the Ossining area hundreds of years ago.
As part of the experience, 10,000-year-old artifacts have also been brought in as teaching tools.
The wigwam is expected to last for about 10 years, so future classes will get to experience and learn from the hard work of the students.
The Claremont students will finish the project by the end of the month. The school was able to build the wigwam with donations from the Ossining Matters Education Foundation.
