5th Grade Riley’s Farm Field Trip

Our fifth graders were able to take part in a wonderful field trip to Riley’s Farm.  It is an overnight adventure where the students are Revolutionary War soldiers.  They get to reenact battles and eat food that a colonial soldier would eat.  They participated in training drills and writing with quill and ink.  They were able to actively see some of the things that the colonists may have encountered regarding the Stamp Act and other intolerable acts that took place under British rule. The fifth graders enjoyed a rousing speech given by Patrick Henry.  The students were excited to participate in this unique hands-on learning experience.
