The fourth grade and Share Class went on a field trip together on January 16, 2018, where we visited the State House and Vermont History Museum in Montpelier. In the museum the students got to actively walk through different eras of Vermont history, and this included seeing what homes, tools, technology, and clothes Vermonters had at different periods of time.
We also got to see the State House. We were led on a tour by a very knowledgeable volunteer, and they showed us the process an idea needs to go through to pass a law. We saw the different rooms that house the Senators, House of Representatives, and the Governor. Some of us were lucky enough that we even got to see our local Senator and Representative, Chris Bray and Harvey Smith! It was simultaneously knowledgeable and a blast.
