Our second graders are "up and out"-- engaging in active learning experiences that deepen understanding across disciplines.
The boys are in the midst of their art unit conducted through the school's partnership with the Guggenheim, studying the works of abstract masters in the museum's collection before applying principles and techniques learned to their own creations.
This week, they drew inspiration from the rotunda of the iconic museum itself.
They also have begun their unit of history on early Manhattan with the New-York Historical Society. N-YHS Educators work with our second grade teachers as the boys explore artifacts, and use hands-on experiences and activities to understand the life of the Lenape people.
Yesterday, as part of this study, the grade went on a field trip to Inwood Park to further explore Lenape culture.
Throughout our program and in all grades, we take advantage of the phenomenal resources of our great city to provide learning experiences that occur beyond the school's walls.
