Through A Child’s Eye: Illustrations by Students from the Boston Teachers Union School
June 15–September 1
Opening Reception: Tuesday, June 18, 5:30–7:30pm
Special Talk: A Closer Look at the Arboretum–Boston Teachers Union School Partnership; Wednesday, July 17, 6:00–7:30pm Register »
Strong observational skills are fundamental to every scientist. The Arnold Arboretum and the Boston Teachers Union School—a BPS pilot school—are engaged in a unique partnership to develop observational skills and foster a love of science in every student from kindergarten through fifth grade. Through hands-on work and experiments with plants and animals, Arboretum staff guide students to create accurate, vivid illustrations and describe what they see using rich vocabulary. This leads student scholars to ask questions, design experiments, do research, and learn important concepts in the life sciences. Works in this exhibition represent a range of ages, as well as the breadth of life science topics studied in the classroom, all seen through a child’s eye.
