A rite of passage in fifth grade is an annual field trip to Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. Charles Wright fifth graders stepped back in time on June 9th, learning about textiles, and printing and cooking in colonial times. Students toured the village, interacting with residents who shared their experiences as Americans in the 19th century. Students ended their day participating in a Town Meeting, debating a citizen's responsibility to care for fellow townspeople. It was a fantastic culminating event to their year-long study of the founding of the United States.
