At Childs Elementary School in Monroe County Community School Corporation (MCCSC), a third grade teacher tweeted a bulletin board with the land acknowledgment display, "WE ARE ON INDIGENOUS LAND!" apparently hand-colored by children.
One portion of the display informs: "Land Acknowledgment. What is that? Let us journey together. Take a moment to connect with the land that you are currently standing on. Now introduce yourself spiritually; build a relationship with Mother Earth that provides for all our relations."
The MCCSC Third Grade Curriculum Guide for Parents doesn't indicate a requirement for teaching about the practice of Land Acknowledgement or connecting spiritually with Mother Earth.
