4th Grade and 8th Grade Continue Learning on Recent Study Trips


Fairmont Private School, Mable4th Grade Time Capsule Trip   
Once again, the fourth graders at Mable Elementary participated in the "Time Capsule" Study Program sponsored by the Ocean Institute in Dana Point.  California history came alive with many hands-on experiences as the students became pioneers for two days at the Lazy W Ranch in the Cleveland Forest.  

Our journey began with a tour of Mission San Juan Capistrano.  The students had an opportunity to experience the daily operation of life at this "jewel of the California missions."  Our next stop was the Lazy W Ranch as we journeyed a few miles to the east. Here the students participated in various activities such as making adobe bricks from mud and straw, grinding corn to make tortillas, creating a native American  dwelling from tree branches, and identifying various herbs used for medicinal purposes   The evening was spent making candles and weaving headbands, and the day ended with a lively fiesta, complete with a piņata.     

The next morning brought a few more activities.  Students designed tin art as part of the Spanish influence.  They also learned to construct modern conveniences such as showers, toilets, doorbells, and light bulbs.  Students were even given the unscheduled experience of heavy rainfall for a brief period before heading home.  Everyone had an unforgettable experience as they traveled through time, remembering early California.

8th Grade Washington, D.C. Trip
This past week, the 8th graders embarked on an exciting journey to Washington, D.C. Departing from Long Beach Airport, the 8th graders first arrived in Virginia and met their wonderful tour guide, Cornelius "Neal" McGovern. From there they set off on a week-long American history excursion.  Throughout the week, the students visited historical sites significant to the United States' development and culture. The first stop of the week was Williamsburg, which was truly a phenomenal place with lush green hills and color-changing trees. In Williamsburg, the students got a glimpse of  colonial life as it would have been in the 1700's.  After leaving Williamsburg, the students continued on to the nation's capital, Washington, D.C. There they visited various monuments and memorials, all built to remember those who made a difference to the country. The Pentagon Memorial, built to honor those who died on 9/11/2001, was quite touching. Another moving visit was to Arlington Cemetery. Two students, Liza M. and Nick P., took part in a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider.  On a lighter note, the students also visited the many Smithsonian museums including Air and Space, Natural History, and American History.  One of the highlights of the trip was a performance at the Kennedy Performing Arts Center, "Sheer Madness." This play was an improvisation comedy which consisted of unexpected humor and tons of fun. Everyone had a good laugh.  This extraordinary educational experience concluded on Veteran's Day when the students gathered in front of the White House in hopes of catching a glimpse of the President.  Unfortunately, he was not to be seen.  After an exhilarating week-long journey, the eighth graders were ready to return home and share their experiences!
