As if we all didn't have enough reasons already to support our local business community, comes this note--and photos too--courtesy of CET teacher Patricia Lynch, whose class recently visited Feed the Birds (862-4700, 326 S. RIVERSIDE AVE.) Click on the photos below--all rights reserved Patricia Lynch--and don't forget to patronize our local business community:
"The First Graders are studying 'Communities' as part of our Social Studies unit. Each First Grade class went to a different local business. Baked by Susan, Feed the Birds, Mexigo a.k.a. Mex-to-Go, ShopRite, Bagels-on-Hudson and Groovy on Grand all welcomed the students with open arms! After interviewing the owners about how they help the community and how they ran their shop, each student got to have a hands-on experience. In Feed the Birds, students explored various birdhouses and types of seed. The feeders with devices to trick squirrels into staying away from the seed kept the First Graders busy. Bob taught them about the different preferences birds have and how his hobby turned into a business. He presented each child with a ruler decorated with birds and books on eagles and owls. Fun was had by all!"
