Over the past few years the third grade students of Carver have had the opportunity to visit the Jenney Grist Mill and take part in the walking tour. Our students investigate relevant historical information that directly correlates to our Carver curriculum, as well as the Massachusetts State Frameworks in both Social Studies and Science. Students are treated to a lively explanation of the experiences of the Pilgrims in 1620. They cannot help but to be riveted by Miller Martin's lively tales as he points out historic landmarks and features of his mill. The third grade team of teachers looks forward each year to our visit, using the trip to reinforce content taught, and often utilizing the experience to generate some wonderful writing in the classroom. This is one of our favorite field trip experiences in Carver, and the academic tie-ins make it an excellent learning experience for all of us!

The tour of the gristmill for groups of no more than 25 is great. The material covered alligns to MA 5th grade SS standards! The knowledge and storytelling presentation is most engaging.

We always reward the students with icecream, at the same location, as a bonus for their engaging
behavior.

We brought a school group up in June 2010. We were impressed with the tours and patience of the various tour advisors we met at your organization. Our students ask questions that generally impress tour staff as they stay on target with key are patient and do not interrupt the presentation. They wait their turn. Consequently, my students were complemented by your staff for their contributions to the presentations. We would love to come back again in a year or two. Linda K. Kondor The Ridge School.

The Jenney Grist Mill is a wonderful example of making history come to life. Our Pennsylvania school district takes 8th graders to Plymouth/Boston every year and the Grist Mill is one of our highlights. The miller, Leo, has a great grasp of colonial Plymouth and a neat way of explaining it to the kids. His interactions are outstanding and our students love his walking tour. It helps that he is dresses like a Pilgrim! The mill explanation is also fascinating, especially the miller's terms that are a common part of our lexicon, such as" keep your nose to the grindstone" or "show me your metal". Nancy, the miller's wife, is also very friendly and helpful. She schedules the tours and is sure to accommodate each group. Overall, I cannot say enough about the positive experiences we have had year after year at the Jenney Grist Mill.
