#SASAtoms Middle School Glimpses into History at Gettysburg
On Friday, June 8, 2018, twenty-five seventh-graders traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to glimpse into a piece of history. #SASCS arrived at the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA and to tour the museum and listen to a presentation by the museum docent. During the evening students meandered through a “Live or Die” ghost tour listening to stories of Civil War soldiers.
Students spent the day on Saturday going back in time to study the history of the Civil War. #SASCS started off the day at the Gettysburg National Military Park where students learned about the war and the importance of the Battle of Gettysburg and Gettysburg Address. Students then toured the battlefield with a guide who showed them monuments of New York regiments and sites of the battlefield like “Picketts Charge.”
7th Grade #SASAtoms glimpsed into a piece of history at Gettysburg. These field trips to historic sites are one of the many ways #SASCS promotes hands-on, minds-on learning every day. Go Atoms! #SASCS #SASAToms
