“Experiencing History
As the result of a generous donation from the SEED Foundation, Bayport-Blue Point elementary school fourth-graders had the chance to experience a part of their social studies curriculum in a hands-on way this spring. During a trip to the Old Bethpage Restoration Village, the students stepped back in time and learned about the Colonial period.

The students visited several houses that were original to Long Island but currently reside on the property, learned about the time period with the help of the town mayor, visited traditional sleeping quarters and made purchases in the general store. They also witnessed demonstrations by the town potter and hatter, visited the Powell Farm and toured a one-room schoolhouse.

The trip provided many relevant learning experiences that tied into the grade’s curriculum and enhanced the students’ understanding of the time period. ”

Students from Academy sent in this Thank You along with photos on this page.  Looks like everyone had a great time!
