Three days time enough for Frink students to travel back into history, tour the world
Students from E.B. Frink Middle School traveled back in time and around the world all in a span of three days.
More than 40 eighth- and seventh-grade students, led by Zach Groves, Casey Martin, Lauran Smith and John Becker, traveled to Virginia’s Historic Triangle in late March. Students were treated to a colonial experience in Williamsburg with the Governor’s Palace, the Bruton Parish Church and other historic sites. They also enjoyed dinner in a colonial tavern.
Students also braved the early spring rain in Historic Jamestowne, mised with a visit to a glasshouse and an afternoon stop at Yorktown. The students set foot on Surrender Field, where the British surrendered to the Americans to end the Revolutionary War. They also spent time inside the Yorktown Victory Museum, which was in the midst of its grand opening. After dinner, these students not only took in a show with African American music, but were also part of the show! They played instruments, sang, and danced as they took in African American culture in the 1600-1700s.
FMS capped it off with a day at Busch Gardens, where the students traveled throughout countries like “Italy,” “England,” “Germany,” and more while enjoying the world-famous roller coasters.
