Big Idea #2 - Did You Know...
...that Bynum School made the national news for dancing and singing at school? Dancing and singing is part of their morning, and students at Bynum have been doing this for decades. View the video from the NBC Today Sunday Morning report to see how the students even got the reporter to dance with them.
Big Idea #3 - American Indian Traditional Games
