"I enjoyed so many things in DC. One thing I particularly enjoyed was Mount Vernon because it was cool to see where George Washington lived. Another memorable thing was all the memorials, because it was cool to see how people were honored. I learned a lot about the history and culture of different people and places during all the museums, which was really fun. Overall I made so many fun memories during the trip that I will never forget."

"Last week our eighth grade class went to Washington DC for the week. We explored a lot of famous landmarks and locations, such as the Natural History Museum, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Washington Monument. My favorite place was the Air and Space Museum because there were many interesting exhibits to look at and people to meet. The most meaningful place was the Holocaust Museum because it was so interesting and the exhibits were very immersive."  

"I enjoyed going to the capital. I liked seeing all of the places inside and going on the tour. I learned that depending on if the flag is up on a certain side that the house or the senate is in a meeting. I loved hanging out with my friends and seeing all of the museums. I made so many great memories and had an amazing time."
