Commodore Macdonough Elementary School
Macdonough Students Get into Nature
Through collaboration with Everyone Outside, the Commodore Macdonough Elementary School’s “Macdonough Students Get into Nature” program will provide opportunities for Macdonough students to learn about and be better connected with the natural world through a series of field trips for each grade, including field trips to Indian Hill Cemetery, Wadsworth Mansion, and the Middlesex Land Trust’s Palmer-Taylor Preserve and Mica Ledges Preserve. In addition, Macdonough teachers will receive training to enable them to offer more lessons about nature and local ecosystems that incorporate the new Next Generation Science Standards as well as the common core curriculum. Grant amount: $1,980.
