While hiking, students hike learn to identify local tree species and to select an appropriate location for a wicwam. They cut saplings, strip the bark, and lash them together to create a frame and then cover it to complete the structure. The class also may imagine and/or role-play a piece of the life of a Wappinger tribe member. This lesson can be done on school grounds if hiking trips are not possible.
