Contributor’s Name: Matt Volk
We go on a 5-day trip to Washington DC in the Spring with our 7th grade students. Themes include exploration and identity (of a place). Part of the trip is guided/planned by teachers, but several activities each day will be guided/planned by students, making this a relatively student-organized trip. We will study some things for context before heading for DC in our classroom curriculum, including history/government (to make those connections while we’re there).
