For Grades 2–5
Students taking part in Boyhood in Brookline learn how young Jack Kennedy transformed challenges into enriching opportunities that built character and gave rise to a life of public service, and ultimately the presidency.
Students tour the birthplace –reading evidence and hearing stories that reveal how family and illness helped shape the president's character. Students then venture out into the neighborhood where they compare historic photos with the contemporary environment as they learn about the historic setting that was home to the Kennedy family for 13 years.
