Washington on the Brazos
First of all, I want to praise our students for their exceptional behavior on our field trip to Washington on the Brazos. The students were respectful to all presenters and truly "zoned" into the exhibits, presentations and information shared. We started our trip in the museum where we toured exhibits related to the settlements of Texas, participated in a scavenger hunt of the timeline of Texas history and watched a video on the battle for Texas Independence in the theatre. After a break for lunch, we toured the home of Anson Jones, the fourth and last president of the Republic of Texas. Students got a good glimpse of what life was like by playing traditional games and completing chores. We also learned about the impact of cotton as a financial asset to the farm and what daily life was like for all of those who lived on the farm. As the students move forward in their study of Texas history in Social Studies they will be able to think back on this trip and make connections to the information.
