Second grade students at West DeFuniak Elementary enjoyed learning about Native Americans from Ms. Sylvia Glover. Ms. Glover is from Westville, Florida. She collects Native American artifacts such as arrowheads, pottery, deerskin blankets, and other various tools from this era. She explained to the students how the items were used by the Native Americans in everyday life. Students enjoyed holding and observing the artifacts.
