After FCAT, we took the 5th graders on a trip to Tallahassee as an end-of-elementary school trip. We left at 5 am, drove up, saw the New Capital, the Supreme Court, the Planetarium, and ate dinner...all 95 of us! We then checked into our hotel and all kids were locked in their rooms at 9:00...not that they were going to sleep at that time! :)
The next morning,we checked out, ate breakfast and went to the House of Representatives, the old Capital, FSU, and Mission San Luis before heading back home. We arrived after midnight. It was such a fun trip, though I feel as if I have just recovered a week later.
My students haven't stopped talking about it!
