Wouldn't it be cool to stand in the place where George Washington spoke to the Colonial Army over 225 years ago!??! With your help, that's what I'm hoping to allow my incoming class of fifth grade students to do this-coming fall. All fifth graders in New York State take a State Social Studies Test in mid-November. Therefore, it is incumbent upon me to review all of the areas of history so they can be adequately prepared for the test. A large chunk of the test covers the American Revolution, which is something to which many of them feel disconnected. Therefore, in lieu of dull test prep sessions, I want to bring Revolutionary War history alive for them by taking to Fraunces Tavern Museum, located in downtown Manhattan. Fraunces Tavern Museum is a survivor of the early days of New York City. Though it is best known as the site where General George Washington gave his farewell address to the officers of the Continental Army in 1783, it also played a significant role in pre-Revolutionary activities. (Early in the 20th century, the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York purchased the tavern and commissioned a preservation architect to return the building to its colonial appearance.) Therefore, this landmark is an important place for my fifth grade to visit. On the trip, my students will learn about taverns as public meeting places in the 18th century and, in particular, they'll understand the role Fraunces Tavern played in the American Revolution. The program incorporates discussion, inquiry-based learning, and direct handling of objects. Further, it supports New York State's Standards for History of the United States and New York, which means it will definitely help my students prepare for the New York State Social Studies Test! Due to most of my students' financial situations, the fee for this trip is more than they can afford. Therefore, your donation will allow ALL of my students to stand in the place where General Washington once stood. Thank you, in advance, for considering my proposal.
