Just got back from what our CTA guide called “a unique trip to Washington, D.C.” and what a wonderful time it was. Due to recent changes in the Reading social studies curriculum the more “traditional” eighth grade DC/right of passage field trip was traded for an itinerary including Shakespearean theater, ancient Asian art, and an incredible journey through the Lauray Caverns of Virginia. Many of Washington’s monuments and memorials were also included in our travels. The weather didn’t always cooperate but we were able to experience nearly everything we planned on and then some. As has become my norm for travel with students, I brought along my digital camera. My favorite clips from my video journal can be found below.
