New Lothrop students learn about Native Americans

New Lothrop teacher Keith Villano invited Gary Ghareeb into his fifth grade classes to teach the students about how the Native American’s used literally every part of the animals they hunted. Animals were used for food, safety, warmth, protection, tools, decoration, and much more. Students listened to a 45 minute presentation and were given the remainder of the block to experience (touch) the artifacts. This was a very engaging presentation. The New Lothrop Elementary PTO donated the money for the cost of this program so students could learn from Ghareeb. “Mr. Ghareeb delivered a very engaging presentation to our students,” said New Lothrop Elementary School principal Michelle Barrett. “The students were focused on every word that Mr. Ghareeb spoke. So much of learning comes from experiences - our fifth grade students won’t forget how the Native Americans literally used every part of the animals that they hunted (for food, safety, warmth, protection, tools, decoration and much more). We love when are able to provide our students with hands-on activities. Thank you to Mr. Villano for setting this learning opportunity up and to our PTO for sponsoring it.”
