Tyrone’s DE US History class, DE Psychology class, and Honors US Civics class explored the nation’s capital on November 3.

The trip was organized and chaperoned by DE US History teacher Suzy Burket, Psychology/Sociology teacher Olivia Grugan, and Eagle Eye/Civics teacher Todd Cammarata.

The itinerary for the trip was split between the classes.

The weather was beautiful, and there were no lines anywhere. I think this D.C. trip was by far my favorite”

— Senior Morgan Bridges

DE US History and DE Psychology started their day at the Holocaust museum. The group walked past the Trump Hotel and took some photos there. Then, they ate lunch at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center food court.  The group visited National Museum of American History, and then the National Museum of Natural History.  Then, they went to the Washington Monument.

“I saw the Holocaust museum for the first time. I enjoyed it, but it was very depressing. The video at the end where it shows all of the victims made me cry,” said junior Haley Conrad.

“The Holocaust museum was a great learning experience, and I enjoyed learning the history of it. It had really cool artifacts,” said senior Dylan Thomas.

The DE Psychology class had a task to “condition” somebody while on the trip based on the classical conditioning lesson the class learned that week.

The Honors US Civics class began their day at the United States Botanic Garden. Then, they took a stroll past the Capitol Building and visited the Library of Congress. After that, the group made a stop at the Supreme Court and took a look around inside. The group ate lunch at Union Station, and then took a ride on the metro to the National Archives.

“I had a great time visiting so many historical places. The weather was beautiful, and there were no lines anywhere. I think this D.C. trip was by far my favorite,” said senior Morgan Bridges.

On the way to the National Museum of American History, the group walked through the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden.

At the Smithsonian American History Museum, Mr. Cammarata pointed out the camera that Jules Naudet used to capture Flight 11 crashing into the World Trade Center. The students in his civics class enjoyed seeing the camera on display because they had watched the 9-11 documentary produced by the Naudet brothers in class.

After visiting the museum, all three classes got on the bus and made their last stop at the FDR Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial.

On the way home, everybody enjoyed dinner at Golden Corral.
