Florida fun: Fourth and fifth graders visit St. Augustine and the Everglades


Imagine going on not one, but two field trips to learn about Florida’s history! Fourth and fifth graders at HHE visited St. Augustine and the Everglades. In January, the students went to learn about the oldest city in the United States. In St. Augustine, they visited many historical places including the Fountain of Youth and Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. At the Everglades, students were able to view the animals and land close up by taking an airboat ride and slogging. Both trips were educational and provided the fourth and fifth graders with learning opportunities about Florida.

“At the Everglades, we went on an airboat ride, slogged through the mud, and even lost some shoes!” fourth and fifth grade teacher Mrs. Lucas said. “St. Augustine was amazing. We took a trolley ride around the city and saw many sites.”
