Sense of Place: Mother’s Day

Think about this:

  • How does Billy Collins’ poem, “The Lanyard,” use humor as a way to highlight the immense gratitude the poet feels towards his mother?
  • What non-commercial gifts and activities can you do on Mother’s Day to celebrate motherhood in Western MA?
  • What traditions do you associate with celebrating Mother’s Day?
  • How can we use Mother’s Day as a catalyst for learning about art, ancestry, and women’s history?
