Third-Grade Walking Field Trip

At the spinning wheel: Aoife Clarke, Gavin Cote, and Caroline Conlon 

  • In the Mann House, members of the Scituate Historical Society told the students some of Scituate's unique stories from the past.  They learned about Percy Mann's many professions and his "hidden treasure" in the attic, and they saw some actual tea from the Boston Tea Party!
  • The students went on a scavenger hunt for native plants in the Wild Flower Garden, guided by members of the Scituate Garden Club.  They found many kinds of ferns, native wildflowers, and blossoming trees.  

Fifth Grade at the Museum of Science


Planting the “Three Sisters”


  • Third-grade classes planted the "three sisters" (corn, beans, and squash) in the Jenkins garden.
  • Families who live near the garden are invited to help water over the summer. 

Colonial Crafter Museum


  • Each student in Mrs. Fiddler’s class researched a trade that was essential to colonial life in America during the 1700s.  
  • The students wrote to describe the roles of their crafters, the materials used, the goods produced, and the way they helped to make life easier in the colonies. 
  • They created dioramas of the crafters' shops as their museum artifacts and presented their information to their caregivers and second-grade students too.

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Shark Award


  • Nora Richards and Laila Smith accept the shark for Mrs. Christian’s class at the assembly.

  • Mrs. Christian’s second-grade class won the K-2 Shark Award with 24 shark teeth.
  • That’s 240 acts of being ‘fin’tastic!
