Bringing Learning to Life

Help me give my students this once in a lifetime experience to make the Civil War come to life.

My Students

My students have a genuine love of learning...they crave to learn about new things. They enjoy topics ranging anywhere from Ancient Greek Civilization to The War of 1812. They become excited about anything from the Life Cycle of Plants or Butterflies to How the Earth rotates and revolves to allow for Seasonal Cycles.

I have recently realized that they truly crave any and all topics that allow them to better understand the world around them.

These children want to know "why" and "how" things are the way they are. They love to read, experiment, and create!!!

My Project

I would like for this project to allow the students to see firsthand what life during the Civil War was like. Our class goes back in time to learn the history of our nation in our Unit on the Civil War. The Civil War Unit is always a student favorite!

The Discovery Park Field Trip which will cost $9 per student ($8 admission into the Park and $1 Bus Fuel) will be an exciting culmination activity to make Civil War history come to life.

The entire park is set up to allow visitors to learn about the Civil War with interactive exhibits, authentic artifacts, and a live reenactment! I know that my students will remember and treasure this experience for the rest of their lives.
