A group of fifth-grade students from Mammoth Elementary School went to Washington, D.C. during their vacation.
They traveled by plane and bus and had so much fun. This trip wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Mrs. Nancy Worden. She organized the trip so these students could go and they want to give her a big thank you.
They went to many monuments, museums and memorials. One was the Word War II Memorial. There were gold stars to represent the soldiers who died in the war. Each star represented 100 soldiers and there are more than 4,000 stars.
They also went to the Lincoln Memorial and it was huge! They went to two Smithsonian museums, toured the house where Lincoln died and visited the International Spy Museum.
In the American History Smithsonian they saw a very important artifact. They saw the actual flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write The Star Spangled Banner. They also visited other very important sites such as the Washington Monument, the White House, Capital Building, Library of Congress and so many more.
They had a lot of fun. They hope to go there again someday.
