Where Every Child is Known and Inspired to Excel, to Lead, to Care

1st Grade classes visited the Long Island Children's Museum for a program called Mapping our World. Lessons from this trip are integrated with the 1st Grade's year-long social studies curriculum—an overview of the seven continents. Students studied maps of all sizes, starting from a map of the museum's floor plans and exhibits all the way to a world map. Finally, each class constructed their own map, complete with a scale, legend, and compass rose.
