DC Trip: Day 1

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Welcome to our Washington DC Trip blog! Each day we'll post a paragraph or two from a student, and we'll write about what we did during the day.

Student Blog #1 

Today we got to D.C. It was awesome. The plane ride was super fun. I think everybody had cards. When we got off the plane, we left for lunch. Then we went to the Udvar-Hazy museum. We saw some awesome stuff. The planes were so cool and the space area was awesome. We went to the battlefield of Manassas too. It started raining though, so we got back on the bus. Today was an awesome dsay.

Today's Activities

We were on two different flights from Minneapolis to Washington DC. Everyone arrived by noon. We met just outside of the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum and ate lunch. Then our smaller groups walked the short block to the museum where we discovered planes from before WWI to present day. We saw the Enola Gay, the Space Shuttle Discovery, a Lear Jet, fighter planes from different countries and different wars. We wrapped up our Udvar visit with a class picture in front of the Discovery.

Next up was Manassas Battle Field, where our visit was cut VERY short by an oncoming rainstorm. We set off to get some dinner and we're on our way to our hotel right now. 

Tomorrow: Jamestown!
