“SummerTide” program at Latham features virtual trips to the NE Aquarium and Freedom Trail
July 28, 2020
Special Education Teacher Katie Jaeger shared highlights of two recent SummerTide field trips that were a big hit with our students and staff:
“We had campus split in half to attend two virtual field trips — one to the New England Aquarium to meet Patricia, and one with the Freedom Trail Foundation to meet Emily. At the aquarium, students saw the Giant Ocean Tank which is home to thousands of fish and a sea turtle, seals, seahorses, and even an orange lobster. They asked lots of questions about the different animals they saw. The Freedom Trail Foundation showed lots of pictures of things you’d see along the trail, like Paul Revere’s home, the North Church where he lit the lanterns, and many statues. Students asked questions about Paul Revere’s home, wondering what the inside looked like. They were curious about the outfits the tour guides wear as well. Both groups seemed to have a great time!”
SummerTide is a Latham Children’s Services field trip-and club-based learning program in July and August.
Special thanks to Katie Jaeger for capturing these fantastic images of the virtual field trips!
