6th Grade Washington DC Trip
After spending two years studying American history, sixth grade students will journey to the Nation’s Capital. They will experience hands on learning from the bounty of its museums, monuments, governmental and historical buildings, documents, and statuary. Their studies have taken them from the signing of the Declaration of Independence through various wars, presidents, and Supreme Court decisions. Sixth graders will walk their history timeline while taking in the National Mall and exploring buildings the leaders of this country have used to govern and build our nation. We will visit the Smithsonian Museums, Capitol building, and many other national treasures. This trip of a lifetime with classmates will bring to life the history of the government of our great nation.
Trip Information (2020–2021)
In a normal year, this trip would be a class trip led by the sixth grade teachers. This year, given COVID-19 concerns, families are encouraged to take their sixth graders to Washington DC during the week of April 19–23 and follow a schedule very similar to a traditional sixth grade teacher-led trip. Students unable to go to DC during this week will have activities at school.
