Getting on/off a bus. Walking and standing during field trips.
We will ride via bus to the National Constitution Center. The Center's permanent exhibition, The Story of We the People, tells the story of the Constitution, its history, and its contemporary relevance through more than 100 multimedia exhibits, film, photographs, text, sculpture, and artifacts. It also features a powerful, award-winning theatrical performance, "Freedom Rising", and Signers' Hall. We will learn more about the three branches of government as we explore giant models of the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court. Public Program demonstrators will lead us through an entertaining look at the buildings, the people who work in them, and our government’s system of checks and balances.
At the museum, lunch voucher provided
Our next field trip is to the Museum of the American Revolution, opened in 2017 two blocks from Independence Hall. It is the first museum of its kind to trace the steps that led to our break with the “Mother Country” of England and eventually to revolutionary war. With an educator, we will take a virtual journey through the American Revolution, encountering the events, people, and ideals of the founding of the United States through state-of-the-art design and technology. The collection of thousands of objects includes works of art, manuscripts, and printed pieces from the period. One particularly historic item is the original tent that George Washington used as his command center.
At a nearby restaurant.
This evening we will see the Broadway production of Escape to Margaritaville.Margaritaville, where people come to get away from it all, and stay to find something they never expected. With a book by Emmy Award® winner Greg Garcia (“My Name is Earl,” “Raising Hope”) and Emmy Award® nominee Mike O’Malley (“Survivors Remorse,” “Shameless”) ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE is the musical comedy featuring both original songs and your most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics, including “Fins,” “Volcano,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and many more.
