D.C. Day 4: Iwo Jima, Planet Word, African American History & Culture
dc day 4

By Dorothea Myers and Logan Slabaugh

Although today was the last day of the eighth grade trip to Washington, D.C., it was full of fun activities that kept us busy until we got on the bus to head home.

First, we visited the Iwo Jima Memorial. We walked around and got to see all of the different perspectives of the sculpture. Then we went to the Planet Word Museum. There we learned about different parts of speech by interacting with the exhibits there, which included a karaoke room, a photo booth, and various interactive activities.

After, we had lunch and explored the National Museum of African American History & Culture. Beginning on the lower level, we chronologically explored the eight floors at this museum and learned so much about African American history and culture in the United States.

The bus ride home was long, but we remained in high spirits. We are thankful for this experience, during which the eighth grade bonded and had so much fun together.
