The first grade ferry trip to New York City was a grand success! Even though there were remnants of the rainstorm the night before, the students showed an adventurous and excited spirit!
After a walk along the waterfront to the Hoboken Terminal, the students boarded a New York Waterway ferry to Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan. The ferry trip was exciting for all of us! Many of us had never traveled on a ferry before.
When the class arrived at the ferry terminal in New York, everyone walked to the Rockefeller Playground nearby. The students explored new kinds of play equipment and enjoyed imaginative play together.
It was quite cold! But running kept the children warm (for the most part!)
Then, the class walked just a few blocks away to Teardrop Park, a very different type of playground!
Stairs led to a walkway above a rocky outcropping–and the walkway led to an amazing slide! The children climbed rocks, slid down in a variety of ways, and enjoyed lunch before heading back to Hoboken and the warmth of an afternoon at school.
