Recently the 4th and 5th graders went to St. Augustine, FL to enhance their study of Florida history. Students previously studied the historical settlement of Florida. By visiting St. Augustine they were able to visualize this early period of Floridian history. Students visited Castillo de San Marcos ( an old fort). They also visited the Old Florida Museum in which they participated in programs involving homesteads and early Spanish settlement. Students ended the day with a ghost tour involving historical figures. The following day students were able drink from the Fountain of Youth and visited an old Spanish mission.
Before heading home we were able to experience the launch of the Space Ship Discovery which was an unexpected treat for the students of the Country Day School. It was a successful trip. Thank you to all the staff, students and parents who made it a rewarding educational trip. The Trip that ended in a BLAST!!
