Transit "Problems"

As part of a unit on time and measurement, some students in Miriam and Josh’s third grade class learned to read a Septa bus schedule and created their own bus travel math problems.

What were some things they learned? “You have to be very specific.” “It can be confusing.” “Morning bus routes take longer than late night ones.” “There are fewer buses on the weekends.” 

Experiencing habitus

Here are some photos from the third grade art trip to see habitus by Ann Hamilton at Municipal Pier 9 and to sketch at the Race Street Pier. The installation will be at the pier through October 10.



Historic Philadelphia

As part of their "City" study, first and second graders in Primary C took a field trip to historic sites in Philadelphia. They visited the new Benjamin Franklin Museum, the Franklin Court Printing Office, Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell.
