Historical Norton, Massachusetts

J. C. Solomonese and L.G. Nourse Elementary Schools
Third grade students explore their own community, do research, and create video reports. Students from two different elementary schools in Norton took an historical tour of their community, with cameras in hand.
They studied the history of Massachusetts during the 1700's and summarized what they learned by creating videos they posted in Google Maps. View the map of Norton and learn about its historical sites through the eyes of 3rd grade students.

Students are from J. C. Solomonese and L.G. Nourse Elementary Schools in Norton, MA.
