Fifth Grade Field Trip

Ms. Bird

The fifth graders braved the rain on March 31 for their field trip to Camp Floyd.  Students learned about what it was like to live in 1865.  They started with a presentation about Johnston's Army coming into the Salt Lake Valley.  They saw a real musket being fired, then they got some hands on experiences.  They became riders in the Pony Express, they visited a museum and the Stagecoach Inn, learn to fire muskets, made adobe bricks and candles, and they got to see what it was like to be a student in 1865.  The students had a blast.
