Immediately after the academic year end and before our summer program begins, Harborlight Montessori offers two robust and fun Experience Weeks. Students in grades 4th-8th are invited to register to join us.
Upper School (4th -8th grade)
Monday, June 20 through Friday, June 24
Did you know that Massachusetts has 228 museums? During this week, students will visit a different museum each day to explores themes in art, history, and science. Harborlight will equip each student with a sketchbook/observation journal for taking notes and drawing. They will explore exhibits and galleries, roam the grounds and halls, think critically, examine purposefully and be immersed in culture. They will also complete a scavenger hunt in Boston that highlights some of the city’s most spectacular murals and street art. The notes they take, memories they record, and images they sketch will serve as a visual diary of their studies.
MAIN STREETS AND BACK ROADS
Upper School (4th-8th grade)
Monday, June 27 through Friday, July 1
Much like Chronicle’s Main Streets and Back Roads, students will explore gardens, footpaths, statues, parks, trails, waterfronts, and more of our neighboring cities and town. Students will visit Gloucester, Salem, and Newburyport to explore tourist attractions, off-the-beaten-path destinations, notable architecture, and the hidden ‘quirky-corners’ of these communities. While on campus they will design a destination brochure for an imaginary city or town of their own that is inspired by their favorite sights, sounds, and flavors from the week’s adventures.
