 Hudson River is Montessori classroom

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 12, 2017) – The Hudson River served as a giant science lab Thursday for fourth-graders at Montessori Magnet School, who joined thousands of students from New York City to Troy in the annual “Day in the Life of the Hudson and Harbor” sponsored by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

    

Armed with nets, binoculars and curiosity, the Montessori students traveled to the Corning Preserve and explored an array of aquatic life forms that call the Hudson their home. The students took water samples and collected data to add to the larger pool of information being gathered up and down the river. Students also observed fish, plants, birds and the occasional Amtrak train making its way across the river.

 

Our thanks to DEC scientists and others who helped the students with their research. And a shout out to DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos, who joined the Montessori research efforts at the Corning Preserve.

 

Check out a Facebook photo album of the day here. (You don't need a Facebook account to view the pictures. A window may display the text, "To see more from Albany City Schools on Facebook, log in or create an account," but you can dismiss it by clicking "not now.")

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves nearly 9,700 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
