PHOTOS: Students Learn About History During Philadelphia Field Trip

Fifth-graders, who are studying the topic of liberty and its importance in forming the United States, went on an inspiring journey through history by visiting Philadelphia, the birthplace of American freedom, from Oct. 19-21.

During the field trip, the students visited a number of historic sites and museums and saw firsthand where the Founding Fathers worked to create the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. They toured the Benjamin Franklin House, Benjamin Franklin Museum, National Liberty Museum, National Constitution Center, Independence Hall and Liberty Bell Center.

The fifth-graders prepped for their visit to the National Constitution Center, a core component of their trip to Philadelphia, by examining the U.S. Constitution and discussing its importance and how it has evolved over time to address the needs of a changing society.  The trip concluded with a visit to The Franklin Institute, a renowned science and technology museum.
