Last Wednesday we had a special guest in our classroom. One child's grandmother came in and guided us through a fall craft. The children used "magic paper" to draw different types of leaves. They then cut them out to add them to their tree, which was drawn on construction paper. The finished product was beautiful!

Last week 2-503 went to the Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn. We learned how the subways were built and explored old train cars - some from over 100 years ago!

Welcome to a new school year with 2-503! For our first Family Friday, students created a "transportation quilt." We have been learning about all the different ways to get around New York City. Each student chose one transportation method and illustrated it. We then combined it together to make a quilt. What a great start to our subway study!

Last week we learned more about art in the subway, especially mosaics. We then made our own mosaics! Thank you to the PS 130 PTA Art Committee who showed students how to mix grout and finish their pieces.

In December we traveled on the subway to the Coney Island Terminal Station. We learned about how and where subway lines end, and what is special about a terminal station. A wonderful MTA worker answered our many questions about the subway.

Today we visited the Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn in connection to our subway study. We learned about the workers who help build and run the subway.

We even got a visit from one of the "Sand Hogs" - brave workers who built the subway tunnels. He told us about a time when he involved in a dangerous blowout during construction of one of the East River tunnels. Compressed air in the tunnel escaped into a geyser-like explosion, and he blew through the layers of dirt and rock and ended up floating in the river!

Last Friday was Family Friday! We created thoughtful watercolors of one of our favorite series book characters and included their defining character traits. Take a look at us working hard!

We've been taking subway trips to the Fort Hamilton Subway Station. Last week we visited the station to take a look at the different kinds of signs inside. We observed carefully and drew them!
