The Hudson meets the Seine: City-As School goes to Paris!

Water separates the 5 boroughs in New York City. Manhattan is surrounded by 3 rivers and the Atlantic Ocean. The ocean controls our climate and weather patterns. How much do you know about the water where you live?

Here On Earth is investigating this question with City-As School in New York City as they prepare for a trip to Paris. By inspiring new ways of seeing these river cities through media arts and poetry, the students become active travelers and learners.

The students wrote poems to the Hudson River and The Seine through Dear Body of Water
