Yesterday we visited the Smithsonian Musuem of American History in Washington D.C. We walked through the "Price of Freedom" exhibit which is a timeline of American history and wars fought to preserve our freedom. We also went through the Star Spangled Banner exhibit and learned even more for our research for the Star Spangled Banner National Historic Trail. Afterwards the students took in the sights and sounds of the National Mall and even got in a game of hackey sack with Mr. P! Many more pics to come!
We had an absolutely incredible visit to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. last Friday. Students were able to finish their Colonial Projects with some key details they found at the exhibit. We also visited the Titaniboa and Mammals exhibits while we were there. Our students received praise from other visitors while we were there. One high school group from Richmond was not only impressed with their behavior but also how immersed they were in their projects and scavenger hunts! We ended the trip with lunch on the National Mall enjoying the beautiful day!
