This morning, Pinewood 5th graders had the opportunity to take a virtual field trip to the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond, Virginia. Through the amazing technology that Skype offers, we were able to connect with an expert about Jamestown, Pocahontas, and the Powhatan Indians. Students were shown replica artifacts from the 1600’s and were able to interact and ask questions throughout the presentation. We were excited when we knew the answers to so many of the questions and were enthusiastic about asking our own questions. What a great morning! Thank you to the Virginia Historical Society for taking the time to meet with us!
