Fifth Grade Capstone
Students in Fifth Grade will visit a site of national importance--Washington, D.C.—to investigate the larger context of national identity, history and power. Visiting the halls of federal government will help students learn about the nested hierarchy of political and legal structures at the foundation of American history and the American experience. Lessons in history will come to life as students relive our nation’s greatest moments and tragedies and pay tribute to our great leaders. Students will experience first hand how America is a reflection of the cultures that helped create it.
