Atlanta History Center: Field Trip Recap

On October 5, 2022, and October 6, 2022, 7th grade students participated in a field trip to the Atlanta History Center. It was a great experience for the students to “travel” back in time to explore aspects of Georgia farm life. Students had the opportunity to see blacksmithing and woodworking demonstrations as well as learn more about gardening and farm animals. They also received a tour of the Smith family house and an enslaved cabin. During the tours, the tour guides discussed the lifestyle of the Smith family and the living conditions of enslaved persons during that time-period. Students were engaged during the field trip, asked questions, and had an opportunity to examine some of the artifacts on display.
