Who doesn’t love a field trip?! Even better when the field trip takes you back in time, to an era you’ve been studying in the classroom with Ancestors unKnown.
Last week, Ancestors unKnown students from R.B. Stall High School had the wonderful opportunity to leave their classroom for a visit to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Getting a taste of the Plantation’s restored history, they took a tour of several slave cabins, visited the “Big House,” and then toured the swamp gardens. And thanks to their generous teacher, Ms. Johnson, they were also treated to a tasty lunch while they were there.
According to Ms. Johnson, the students “had a blast” during their visit. And according to their tour guide, they were the best group the Plantation has seen yet!
Many thanks to the Magnolia Plantation staff, R.B. Stall High School, and of course Ms. Johnson and her incredible team for helping to bring history to life for the students. We hope the experience highlighted the memories of their ancestors, giving them even more to appreciate about their history…and present.
