The entire fourth grade of Wilmington City Schools recently took a field trip to Fort Ancient Earthworks & Nature Preserve in Oregonia.
This is the first field trip for many students in the last three years.
A grant was awarded by the Wilmington City Schools Foundation and funded by donations from teachers. This paid for the buses, educational programs, and admission to the museum.
Students learned about Prehistoric Native Americans in the Ohio area. They also practiced throwing spears using an atlas, played a game called double ball, and saw various tools, weapons, and artwork.
Many students enjoyed seeing the shelters and farms utilized by the early Ohioans.
