What’s the difference between reading about history in a text book and actually observing it in person? A Queen’s Grant Community School student answered that question by saying: the smell. Eighth-grade students traveled to Washington, D.C. to learn, explore, and reflect on some historic moments in time.
In February, students spent three days touring our nation’s capital keeping a full itinerary to make sure they took advantage of as many educational opportunities as possible. The students toured the White House, laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, visited the Holocaust Museum, Capitol Building, National Cathedral, Mount Vernon, and the Smithsonian—just to name a few educational activities.
