Spring Break- DC Trip


We had a great time in Washington DC this week! A few of your classmates went on the trip with us. We visited lots of different monuments, memorials, and museums.


We even made a side trip to Canada. You can see us all on Canadian soil (above) at the Canadian Embassy.



We were also able to tour the Capitol building. Here is Tanya waiting for the tour to start!


Can you tell who that is at the bottom of the MLK statue? This is a newly opened memorial that we were able to see.

We also got to go in the White House! Of course, we weren't allowed to take our camera inside but I couldn't pass up a picture once we went outside.


Do you know what kind of animal this is? Think back to the very beginning of the year in Social Studies. We talked about it then.


While at Arlington we saw a Caisson. Do you know what this is?


The above statue is one that was given to the Capitol from Alabama. It is the only child statue. Can you guess who she is?

STUDENTS: Post on this blog post for a bonus ticket. What did you do during spring break? If you went on the DC trip what was your favorite place we visited and why? If you did something else, what was your favorite part of the break? I need at least 3 sentences (5th grade sentences) for you to get a bonus ticket! See you Monday!
