Field Trip!

We are super excited about our upcoming field trip. We are scheduled to visit The Hermitage, on Tuesday, September 27, 2011. Please check your child's binder this week for more details & permission slips! *Please remember, it is very important that we wear our class shirts during the field trip.* This is simply a safety measure, and individualizes our group. Please be sure your child wears his/her class shirt on September 27, 2011. (We will send shirts home as soon as they arrive.-If you have not purchased your child's class shirt, you may still turn it in. The cost is 8.00)

Please visit to check out all of the exciting things we will see during our visit!

*We will be participating in a Hands On History program. During this program, we will explore The Trail of Tears. Our objectives are listed below.*
A. Examine historical information from a variety of sources, including museum and library
collections, letters, maps, government documents, oral histories, firsthand accounts, and web
B. Analyze documentation to determine the reasoning, policies and outcomes of the Indian
Removal Act and the Trail of Tears.
C. Understand, through dialogue and discussion, how the Indian Removal Act and the Trail of
Tears was the culmination of a centuries-old attitude toward the Native Americans of the
United States.
