Last Thursday a group of students had the privilege of visiting the Benjamin Banneker Museum! We learned a lot about this Historical figure and about the importance of his work.
After watching a short video and tour, the students were able to see some original and other replicas of Benjamin Banneker’s artifacts preserved by the Historical Society.

Students also learned about old fashioned beehives!

Students had the opportunity to see the replica of his house, grounds, and gardens! “This place is really old fashioned,” one student proclaimed!
Mr. Jones really liked the fireplace and soup pot!
What a wonderful field trip and experience. Hopefully next time we can stop and have a picnic, it was beautiful out there!
