Main Street in Legos

Gr. 2 Recreates Main Street for Social Studies Unit

Second graders created Wynantskill’s Main Avenue in Legos to complete a Social Studies unit.

To learn about rural, urban and suburban communities, students visited Ellms Family Farm, joined the Rensselaer County Historical Society for a walking tour of Troy, and worked together to create Main Avenue.

“The children were totally immersed in this project for two weeks. They did a great job researching each location to place it correctly on the display,” said Teacher Gina Mahoney.
