Virgo Students Take a Historical Walking Field Trip

WHAT:
Seventh grade students from D.C. Virgo Preparatory Academy will be taking a walking field trip to downtown Wilmington, exploring sites related to the 1898 Race Riot.

The field trip is part of a multi-subject collaborative unit tied to the book Crow, authored by Barbara Wright. Students will travel in small groups to complete a scavenger hunt, exploring various sites around downtown. At each location, students will complete three tasks: 1.) take a photograph documenting their visit; 2.) Answer the question cards for each site; and 3.) find an excerpt from Crow that is significant to each location and analyze the quote.

WHEN:
Tuesday December 8, 2015
8:00 a.m.

WHERE:
Begin at D.C. Virgo Preparatory Academy
813 Nixon Street
Wilmington, NC 28401
