Second Graders Connect with History on Ellis Island Field Trip

Our Lower Elementary schoolers recently enjoyed a beautiful ferry ride passing the Statue of Liberty on their way to Ellis Island to learn about the rich history of the island and the over 12 million immigrants who once passed through it to call America their home.

The children particularly enjoyed the "Treasures from Home" exhibit, featuring common items and valued possessions brought into Ellis Island from other countries. It was impactful for our students, also beautifully coinciding with their studies in the second-year language arts curriculum and read-aloud lessons.

Regular field trips are an important part of our curriculum and help learning come alive. Students visit the Hudson River in our backyard as a science lab, and our older students experience overnight camps. It's a short walk to Liberty State Park where students go birding or learn about the park's ecosystem and other park wildlife.

Hudson Montessori School uses an interdisciplinary, theme-based learning approach to education, fostering the love for learning by using the Montessori philosophy and remembering to have fun in the process!. Our school serves children aged 2 to eighth grade. Contact us to learn more about us and our admissions process.
