Students traveled to Boston May 1 – 6, 2022.
The inclusion of a student blog for this middle school learning journey was a new addition. Students took turns sharing their reflections on the days’ experiences.
The Boston learning journey for the eighth grade class is an opportunity to support classroom-based learning with a visit to sites and locations of historical significance that can make a lasting educational impression on students.
To support their classroom study, the students have the opportunity to survey the major events and ideas that led to the American War of Independence. This excursion showcases the importance of Boston as a city that experienced slavery, revolution, and abolition, and how this impacted the development of the early United States.
The travel experiences in Boston contribute to our mission at Mount Madonna, “…to foster creative, intellectual and ethical growth in all students.”
