So, it's time to start planning our next field trip. Since my credential is for social studies, I think our next trip should be to someplace historical. Somewhere that my students can hopefully gain an appreciation for the difficulties faced by their ancestors. I was thinking about this while out running errands this afternoon when I had what can only be described as a lightning bolt to my brain! Of course! The perfect place for my students to experience history is right in our own backyard:
But seriously...how many of our students have actually used one of these?!
