Do your students sing “Jingle Bells” as the snow starts to fly?
Do you have a plaque in your town like this one in Medford, MA?
Natick, MA, where I live, has one for a small cobbler shop commemorating Vice President Henry Wilson. There’s a middle school named after him, too, I think.
Do your students know about it? Do you include it in your lessons?
Do you and your students know about the ones in neighboring towns?
Have you tried Field Trip, an app for iPhone and Android with an associated Web site?
Should MCSS members begin a project to identify such local landmarks? Would it be a useful resource for Massachusetts students and teachers?
What do you think?
