5th graders were so pumped up and excited to go on their amazing field trip to the American Revolutionary War Museum. I was there and it was so much fun! First, when we got there, we went to the Hamilton exhibit where we learned how to fire a cannon. The colonists had to move the cannon to different battles, and let me tell you, the cannon was so heavy and bulky.Also In the Hamilton exhibit we got to dress up and see George Washington in our fancy outfits. Next we went to a different exhibit which took place before and during the American Revolution. We saw statues of soldiers in the battle and we saw a video on King George III. We saw a room based in Boston during the Boston Tea Party and when people got tarred and feathered. After the museum we went to see where the Declaration of Independence was signed and the process they had to go through for our freedom. We saw the chair where George Washington sat where he signed it. After all that we went to see the Liberty Bell, it looked so cool. The story of what happened to the liberty bell is super interesting. On the way back to the bus we ran into a person from a reading company who tells free stories. She told us about William Penn and his long journey to success.
The 5th grade field trip was so much fun that I wanted to interview some people how they liked the field trip. I asked a fifth grader how they liked it. “My favorite part of the fifth grade field trip was watching the film and seeing the tent George Washington used.” said F. W. I asked Mr. Rehn, a fifth grade teacher, what was his favorite part of the field trip was, he said “The presentation of Washington’s tent. It's amazing to think George Washington spent countless nights sleeping in the tent during the Revolutionary War.” I also asked him if he could do anything during the field trip again what would it be. He said “I would love to go through Independence Hall again. It has so much history and so many important decisions were made and documents created that you can find no other place in America. A truly historic landmark.”
I loved interviewing and going on the fifth grade field trip and I loved everything we did.
