My Day at the Park, with the “guys”

On Friday, May 3, 2013 The East Moriches School District came to visit Four Freedoms Park. My 4th grade "Guys Read" club came to the Park as a culminating activity. The "guys" expressed great interest in President Roosevelt following a Pearl Harbor lesson on December 7, 2012. We read and listened to his "a date which will live in infamy" speech. This led to further exploration on our American hero.

Having heard the Park had opened in the fall, I knew it could be the perfect destination. With district support, the “guys” were able to make the journey on public transportation from Long Island. They seemed to enjoy the Tram almost as much as Suzy Brown’s informative tour. The optical illusions and how the stone was chiseled with lettering is something they are all still talking about! What an awesome day!
