This week, 2MG and 2S visited areas in Montclair to collect data to help inform their Town study. These second graders were on a mission to find examples of the four major elements of a town: places to live, places to work, transportation, and open spaces. Each class visited a different section of Montclair for their exploration and data collection. 2S visited the Watchung Plaza area and 2MG visited the Montclair Center/Church Street area. Students were excited to notice various buildings, ways to get around, open spaces, people, pets, and “street furniture” (like public benches, parking meters and recycling bins). The information they gathered will be shared in a variety of formats in the coming weeks. All the data will be a useful reference as they progress through our Town unit in social studies. Thank you to our parent volunteers for accompanying us on our data gathering field trips this week!
