The Brooklyn New School will be visiting TC during Earth Week to share how they integrate green mindedness into their students’ academic experience. Brooklyn New School students master concepts as active thinkers and doers. Math, science, social studies, art and music are integrated in hands-on exploration. Children study the city, the environment, history and culture. They learn to ask questions, use tools to measure, make estimates and draw conclusions about what they see and feel. Children learn their ties to other people, to the past and to the future. They become stronger readers and writers by using reading and writing as tools to carry out their investigations.
