Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in Milwaukee public schools. We have students from 90% of the city's zip codes. We our an arts school and work to implement dance, music, art, movement, and languages into our lessons.
My classroom is made up of an intense group of thinkers.
They are always asking questions to find more information or make a connection in some way. We are always looking for ways to build on these connections in the community; through our aquaponics lab, community service workers, or artists in residence.
This field trip with the Milwaukee Food & City Tours company will make my students' research come to life! My students have spent months diving into Milwaukee's history, culture and architecture. This trip will give them an opportunity to see with their own eyes everything they have researched about.
Students will explore parts of the city they didn't know existed!
The tour guide will be able to connect what students already learned to new facts about the city. Some highlights are the Pryor Street Well, Mayor Barrett's home, the lighthouse, and Washington Park.
We will also make a stop at El Rey where we will enjoy an authentic lunch, and go on a scavenger hunt around the grocery store to learn about products used by different cultures.
