It was the perfect weather for the 2nd grade field trip to Roosevelt Island's Four Freedoms Park.
With the Manhattan skyline providing a stunning backdrop, students enjoyed walking to the southorn tip of the Islance to visit the Memorial to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
During their trip they learned about President Roosevelt and the Four Freedoms (freedom of speech & expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear), discussed the importance of distinguishing between wants and needs, and brainstormed how they could act to give back to their community.
Not bad for a mornings work!
