Thank you so much for allowing me to take all of my classes on the "field trip"! They LOVED it! Everything worked out perfectly, and Mr. Weeks was wonderful! Although, we have not gotten to Westward Expansion yet, this was a great intro to what we will be learning. The students are already excited about getting to this unit due to this trip.All of the students were talking about it all day! That was really exciting for me to hear! Everything was great and kept the students interests. The length was perfect, the auction was great, and the overall lesson was very effective. Again, I truly appreciate you being able to squeeze us all in in one day. It was probably one of the best "field trips" I have ever been on - fun and effective! Heather Bramlett
