CLARK — Students in Christine Cemelli’s fourth grade class at Valley Road School in Clark explored the significance and history of Thanksgiving last week. The students discussed the contributions and importance of the Native Americans during this time. After reading about the topic and discussing it during Reader’s Workshop, students took a trip back in time and experienced some of the hardships the Native Americans faced. Students used brown paper bags to create “buck skin,” and wrote messages to each other using Native American symbols. The class learned different point of views and became thankful for the life styles they have.
