Through the Connected Classrooms Initiative, students in Professor Andrea Armstrong's class teach environmental lessons to fourth graders at Cheston Elementary school. These lessons take place both in their own classrooms and during special excursions to the College's campus. The elementary school students learn about the environment and get to experience a bit of life on a college campus. The Lafayette students learn how to communicate ideas on a fourth grade level and have an opportunity to interact with Easton residents they may not otherwise meet.
