Prior to our visit, we used this experience to learn about our executive branch of government and the roles of the Governor and First Lady. The students learned about the history of the State House and were very excited to see first-hand what we had talked about in the classroom. They found the stained glass dome of the rotunda, made in 1888, very beautiful and an incredible sight to see! We couldn’t leave without taking a picture on the steps outside the State House to capture the moment.
After an exciting morning we could not wait for lunch! We stopped at Steak ‘N Shake in Martinsville and had a delicious meal. The staff at the restaurant was very complimentary of our students’ manners and behavior.
This trip was truly an unforgettable experience for all of us!
