In Their Own Words - The 6th Grade Visits Philadelphia, PA

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

On Friday, October 12 the 6th Graders took a two hour trip to Philadelphia, PA to visit historical places. We visited Independence Hall, the first President - George Washington's house, and the Liberty Bell.  After that it was time for lunch. We split up into groups and went to Reading Terminal Market. We ate Chinese food, pizza and Philly Cheesesteaks. When we were done eating, we bought some candy and continued our adventure in Philadelphia. We went to the Constitution Center and learned about the colonists, we also did fun activities around the museum.

Once we were done learning, we split up into groups to walk the Philadelphia streets. The groups went to different places like, Carpenter's Hall, where the first Continental meeting was held, Elfreth’s Alley which is the oldest street in America, and the Quaker House, where the Quaker religion was practiced.

The 6th graders had an amazing time in Philadelphia. We had fun with their friends and learning!
