Fifth graders spent the day at Garvies Point Museum in Glen Cove, Long Island and had a hands-on experience with the tools and artifacts of the Native Americans. Highlights of the visit included using the tools used to start a fire (fire bow) and throw a spear (adl adl), and a game of Manhunt to finish off the day. The field trip is in conjunction with the Fifth Grade history unit on Native Americans. Teacher Tom McLellan notes: "The boys in Fifth Grade are introduced to the many ways that the Native Americans treasured and preserved their environment.  We have been learning how these people wasted nothing. By the end of the day at Garvies Point, the boys learn that we must learn to preserve the natural environment and not be wasteful."
