WILSON, Okla. -- Wilson Elementary students spent Thursday outdoors learning about early day pioneer life in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Land Run is a tradition that has lasted for almost 120 years.
This fun history lesson gave students a hands-on learning experience of life in the 1800's. The students had a chance to experience Native American culture through a traditional stomp dance.
"It shows the kids early day pioneer life in Oklahoma before we were a state, and at the same time shows Native American culture," said Wilson Elementary School principal Kevin Stinson.
This is how the school chose to celebrate Oklahoma’s Centennial year.
