6th Graders Explore US History with Trip to Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village

Greenfield Village Trip 2021

Forty-seven sixth graders had the exciting opportunity to take a one-day chartered bus trip and explore U.S. History and examples of American ingenuity at The Henry Ford on Friday, May 23, 2021. Participating students had originally planned to take the trip during 5th grade last school year, but it was delayed one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Located just outside of Detroit, in Dearborn, Michigan, The Henry Ford includes the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation and Greenfield Village. Inside the museum, students were able to see an array of engaging exhibits from key points in American history, including, the bus where Rosa Parks helped to ignite the Civil Rights Movement, the rocking chair used by President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre the night of his assassination, an Allegheny Steam Locomotive, and the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile. Located on 80 acres, Greenfield Village includes example of American innovation and creativity, including the Menlo Park complex where Thomas Edison invented the incandescent light bulb, the Wright Brothers’ cycle shop, and the Farris Windmill. Students and staff had a wonderful time on their trip which included a dinner stop at Golden Corral on the way home. A special thank you to 6th/7th Grade Science Teacher Miss Michele McQueen for coordinating this exciting and educational trip for our students!
