Photos: Dayspring Christian celebrates Field Trip Week
Dayspring students in sixth through 12th grade, along with teachers and parent chaperones, spent the first week in October exploring various historical sites as part of the school’s annual Field Trip Week. This is always a fun and educational opportunity for everyone to learn outside the classroom.
The 11th- and 12th-graders went to Washington, D.C., where students participated in a scavenger hunt among the monuments and the Smithsonian, including the U.S. Indian, Natural History, Air and Space, National Archives and the Gallery of Art museums. They enjoyed a play at the Ford Theatre and saw The Nationals beat the Phillies to advance to the World Series playoffs. They also toured the Holocaust and Spy museums.
The ninth- and 10th-graders took a travel bus to New York City where they spent a whirlwind two days viewing such sites as the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sony Wonder Technology Lab, Times Square and Rockefeller Center. They also enjoyed seeing Phantom of the Opera on Broadway.
The eighth-graders took a trip to Richmond to tour the Virginia Capitol, Museum of the Confederacy, Science Museum of Virginia, Agecroft Hall and Gardens, Shakespeare Tour and Virginia Holocaust Museum. They also attended a VCU-Liberty volleyball game.
The sixth- and seventh-graders went to Colonial Virginia. They toured Shirley Plantation, Colonial Williamsburg and the Jamestown Settlement. These tour destinations provided a glimpse into the history of our state and were both educational and exciting!
