4th Graders Visit the Capital

Amy Parks-Heath 4th Grade  Mariners traveled to Austin

On November 15, 2019, our fourth grades had the opportunity to travel to Austin on an Education Action Discover Texas Field trip.  The students visited the State capitol and the Bullock Texas State History Museum. On the chartered bus ride to Austin, the students discussed why Texas are so proud of their heritage and participated in activities to prep them for their visit.  In Austin, the students visited the Texas State Capitol where our legislators, Bob Hall, State Senator, District 2 and Justin Holland, State Representative, District 33, office..

Students saw first-hand where Texas laws are made as they toured the State Capitol including the Senate and House of Representatives chambers. At the Bullock Texas State History Museum students traveled back in time through the Texas Revolution and learned about the events that created our Lone Star identity.

Prior to our fourth grades traveling to Austin, they were able to hear Justin Holland teach them all about the capital and prepare them for their field trip.
