The second grade classes went on a hike around Hoboken to go along with our study in immigration. We started our walk early in the morning.
We looked at the different houses in Hoboken and observed how some look modern while others are much older. Hoboken has so much history!
Our first stop was at the Lackawanna Terminal. We saw where some immigrants would first come after arriving in America.
Then, we drew some drawings of the terminal. The students spent time looking at the details that can be found on this old terminal.
We got to run around Pier A and spend time in nature.
Afterwards, we sat and walked around the steps to do an observational drawing.
Lastly, we walked to Elysian Park and got to eat and run around.
On the way back to school, we passed restaurants and were amazed at all the different cuisines that Hoboken has. Many immigrants came to Hoboken after arriving, and it’s awesome to see all the history and traditions that have been brought to our city.
