Join Us Tomorrow, Saturday, May 6, for Our 14th Annual Social Studies Fair
Journey with us tomorrow to the 14th Annual Social Studies Fair at Hudson Montessori School as we explore the intricate theme of Trade and Trade Routes. Trade takes us all over the world! We invite all our students and children from the community to check out our gallery of wonders. Visiting our galleries is not just informative; it also has social impact!
We empower children at the earliest ages with the knowledge that their actions have real-world meaning. To excite children (including children from the community) to visit all the galleries, we’ve created a challenge that the more classroom galleries a child visits, the more Hudson Montessori School will donate to Save the Children, a humanitarian aid organization that fights against child trade, exploitation, and injustices against children worldwide.
All 14 classroom galleries form a museum of interactive exhibits fully covering the theme; for example, some classrooms examined commodities in-depth, like tea, spices, silk, and amber, or looked at regions of trade routes—North America, South America, or travel on waterways—and explored the evolution of trade over time.
Acts of kindness and gratitude are another component of year-round learning at Hudson Montessori. For example, over the school year, one classroom of children ages 3 to 5 dissected the discovery, history, production, and explosion of popularity of coffee in their exhibit called “Coffee From Cherry to Cup.” They take their learning a step further by inviting all guests to join them tomorrow in acts of gratitude and thoughtfulness. Their gallery includes a gratitude corner, asking parents and children to leave a note of appreciation for the people behind the process—farmers, roasters, transporters, baristas—post it on their board, take a photo, and post it on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #OBlovesyoualatte.
The school and teachers design the free event; the exhibits are developed by students with the help of their families; and our doors are open to the public to enjoy these museum-quality exhibits.
The event will dazzle all ages, and it’s fun too! We’ll also have:
Arts and crafts
Games (Including the CREA game system!)
Rain or shine/open house style
