Study of Hawaii
This summer Chestnut summer school students will study the Islands of Hawaii. Children will discover how the islands were formed, learn about the culture and language of Hawaii, and research the flora and fauna that inhabit the islands. In addition to working with classical Montessori materials, students will study Hawaii through hands-on experiments, music, art, food prep, dance and movement.
Students will engage in our rich, natural environment for outdoor activities as often as the weather permits. This includes picnicking in the play-yard for lunch each day, sprinkler and water play, gardening and nature exploration.
