7th Grade Gettysburg Field Trip


On April 17th, the 7th grade enjoyed a day of discovery at The Gettysburg National Military Park. Students were led through the re-enactment of “Pickett’s Charge” in conjunction with the Gettysburg Park Ranger program. During the program, students received soldier identities, marched a mile across an open field, examined primary source documents, got to see what a musket ball looked like, and experienced the beautiful and haunting Cyclorama. We ended the day with a scavenger hunt through the fascinating Gettysburg Museum. The trip coincided with learning about the Civil War in the 7th grade Social Studies curriculum.
