As part of our Indiana state standards, Triton Elementary third graders focus on learning about many different types of communities.
In anticipation of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, students are learning about the American Indians and European Settlers. Students have started researching and discovering facts about these cultures to gain and understanding of how different communities and culture areas made the United States what we know it as today.
One interesting thing that they have noticed is that American Indians had a great respect for nature and its beauty. They made everyday items works of art.
Budding artists worked to create their own American Indian art to place in a mini-classroom museum exhibit.
