Middle School Students Learn About Math, Art, & Compassion Visiting the “Canstruction” in Manhattan
Every field trip or outing has a purpose at Hudson Montessori School. At a recent visit to the "Canstruction" display in Brookfield Place in Manhattan, the Middle School students reinforced concepts they are learning in the classroom.The students admired the artistry of the can sculptures, estimated the volume as part of their math lesson, and discussed the number of people each can feed.
The free-standing display used no adhesives and was made by 20 engineering firms. All the food from the installation gets donated to City Harvest, the largest food rescue organization in NYC.
This trip was a wonderful reminder of how important it is to give back to our community and drummed up students’ excitement for our school's upcoming Holiday food drive in December. Hudson Montessori School partners with a local organization each holiday season to host a donation drive for those in need. This year, the Hudson Montessori School holiday drive will benefit the food pantry at St. Matthews Lutheran Church a few blocks from the school, which feeds over 500 Jersey City families every week.
