Students go to Williamsburg...without leaving Otisville!


Fourth and fifth grade students participated in an "electronic field trip" to Colonial Williamsburg to study the slave trade.  An electronic field trip is a way for students to use technology to connect with the rest of the world.  In this case, students watched 3 video segments in between which they were afforded an opportunity to pose questions to actors and historians in Colonial Williamsburg.   Teachers emailed students' questions during the broadcast.  Teachers received replies to the questions, then shared them with the students.  To view a sample of questions and their responses, click here.  Thanks to the PTO who funded this technological adventure!
