Learning Outside the Classroom

During the week of October 8, students in grades 6 and 7 enjoyed multi-day, off-campus trips which provided hands-on learning opportunities and encouraged team-building.

Grade 7: Students traveled to Jamestown and Williamsburg to experience Colonial America first-hand. They learned about the early settlement of Jamestown based on findings from recent archeological digs, took part in historical programs in Colonial Williamsburg, enjoyed Colonial food at several local taverns, and capped off the trip with a visit to nearby Busch Gardens.

Grade 6: Students took part in two day trips around the DC area, including Calleva where they were challenged on a team-building ropes course and the Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center where they participated in the Mission to Mars STEAM Lab program.
