From their earliest years in our public schools, Falmouth children are learning through experience many aspects of good citizenship. In elementary grades, children make gardens to see where food comes from and learn about the earth-to-table processes involved. Some classes visit the Falmouth Historical Society’s museum, and docents also take objects to classrooms to show aspects of life in the early history of our town. Whaling, food and clothing production, governing and entertainment are all part of its history and were the responsibilities of many different citizens over the years.
