Getting to Know Glen Cove and Beyond

Coleen Verity's second-grade class from Gribbin Elementary School studied Glen Cove and other United States communities as part of their studies on geography.  Students learned the differences between suburban, urban, and rural areas, and the distinct characteristics of each.  They used this knowledge to discover more about their community and how Glen Cove is similar and different to other cities and towns in the country.  Working in cooperative groups, students created dioramas that exhibited suburban, urban, and rural communities (pictured here).
