Last week, 50 of our 8th graders travelled to Washington DC to learn, collaborate, and have fun. They spent five days touring the capital of the United States by visiting monuments, museums, memorials, and the Capitol Building. The eight graders were also able to travel to Colonial Williamsburg to learn about colonial life when our country was just getting started.

On Sunday, the 8th graders went to Capitol Hill, the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian,  the Washington Monument, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The Capitol Building

On Monday they went to the Jefferson Memorial, the Franklin Delano roosevelt Memorial, The World War II Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and Arlington National Cemetery.

On Tuesday, the students had a Mock Congress and went to the National Air and Space Museum, Capitol Hill, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Vietnam and Korean War Memorials.

On Wednesday, they went to Colonial Williamsburg where they learned about colonial life.

 

On Thursday, the 8th graders went to the White House and the Smithsonian Museum of American History.

Our school tours DC with a program called Closeup. One of the most engaging aspects of the trip was when students are able to discuss what they learned and their thoughts on the day. The entire trip was filled with learning, fun, and teamwork!
