Families and Community Come Together for the 14th Annual Hudson Montessori Social Studies Fair

Thank you to everyone who made this year's Social Studies Fair a great success! Hundreds of guests filled our campus to peruse galleries filled with art, informational pieces, and interactive exhibits. After they checked off each gallery, younger visitors enjoyed face painting, a balloon animals, planting stations, and crafting activities. Everyone enjoyed delicious food from local food trucks, arts and crafts, and exciting games.

The Social Studies Fair is the annual culmination of study on a yearlong, schoolwide theme that changes yearly. This year, "Trade and Trade Routes" was examined by all students of the school, each with a different focus.

Together, the classroom galleries form a museum of exhibits fully covering the theme; for example, some classrooms examined commodities in-depth, like tea, coffee, silk, and salt, or looked at regions of trade routes—North America, South America, or travel on waterways—and explored the evolution of trade over time.

The school will donate funds to the Save the Children organization on behalf of the students of the school for visiting the galleries. Save the Children is a leading humanitarian organization working closely with the United Nations to end child labor, exploitation, starvation, and poverty. Our school is grateful to offer them our support.

Thank you to our students, teachers, staff, families, and Hudson Montessori Volunteer members for partnering with the school for the Social Studies Fair and the many other events to make our children's learning experiences exciting and memorable. A special thank you also to Liberty Harbor and Mr. Peter Mocco for his generosity in providing space. Lastly, we thank the community press for covering this event each year.

Below are the local businesses we thank for rounding out our event:
