1st Grade – Acton Discover Museum Weather
Shaving cream clouds, sun exercises and dry ice...oh my! The Acton Discovery Museum visited the first graders for an interactive workshop all about weather - discussing the weather cycle, watching how heat can change the atmosphere, and identifying many clouds.
2nd Grade – Author Visit & Belmont Walking Tour
The Second Graders had a visit from David Kelly, author of The Ballpark Mysteries series and also enjoyed a walking tour of Belmont. They got a behind-the-scenes look at some of Belmont’s history and resources as they toured the bank, post office, library and town hall.
3rd Grade – Plimoth Plantation
Third grade traveled to Plimoth Plantation where they were able to experience the original settlement of the Plymouth Colony and Wampanoag Village in a hands-on way. What a great start to the Thanksgiving holiday as well as a wonderful complement to the third grade curriculum!
4th Grade – Harvard Museum of Natural History
Fourth graders traveled to the Harvard Museum of Natural History. In addition to exploring the Native American, Glass Flowers, and Mineral, Gems, & Meteorite exhibits, each class attended the Changing Earth presentation. Students used rocks and fossils to discover how oceans, volcanoes, plate tectonics, weathering, erosion, and mountain building have all shaped New England’s landscape.
