Fourth Grade Field Trip - New England Air Museum

Fourth grade teachers Sarah Claffey and Amanda Johnson have arranged for their students to visit the New England Air Museum for an exciting field trip.

The Museum is situated in three large display buildings consisting of more than 75,000 square feet of exhibit space. The children will have the opportunity to view not only aircraft and engine displays, but many fascinating exhibits on such diverse topics as the Lafayette Escadrille, WWII Combat Gliders, the History of Sikorsky Aircraft, Early French Aviation, a History of Air Mail, the Tuskegee Airmen, Airships, and many others.

In addition, the students will participate in a hands on science activity that is aligned with the fourth grade science curriculum.

The field trip, scheduled for May 6th, is being offered to Macdonough School students free of charge!
