Field Trips and Fun During April Vacation

During April Break, we filled the week with field trips and fun! We took a well-earned break from academics and schoolwork to find out what we could learn from exploring some new places in the Boston area.

On Tuesday, we took a school bus out to Higham to discover World’s End, a so close to the ocean, we hiked, played by the water, and had a picnic lunch.

Wednesday took us up to Lincoln, Mass., to our good friends at Farrington Farm. Students planted seeds, built terrariums, painted with mud, and played fun games in the fields. Plus, the staff there took us all on a hike through the woods to learn about what nature in Massachusetts can hold in the spring.


Our last day of April Break was all about science, so we took the T to the Museum of Science. We found the best parts of the museum: the Lightning Show, the Discovery Center, Science in the Park, and much more. We ended the week with lots and lots of popsicles.
