5th Grade at Riley’s Farm!

Last Thursday and Friday, our fifth graders were able to take part in a wonderful field trip to Riley’s Farm.  This field trip is an overnight adventure where the students are Revolutionary War soldiers.  The students get to reenact battles between the British and the colonists.  They eat rations like a colonial soldier would eat. (They also get the delicious Riley’s Farm feasts as well.)  They participate in training drills and writing with quill and ink.  They are 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 also enjoyed a rousing speech given by Patrick Henry.  The students were excited to participate in this unique hands-on learning experience.
