8th graders enjoy historical trip to Boston

The 8th grade class at Northland Christian School enjoyed four days of history and fun in Boston, Massachusetts. After studying U.S. History this school year, the class was able to see and experience what they were taught in the classroom. Thanks to 8th grader Maddie Leard, everyone can enjoy their experience by watching the video above.

A visit to Lexington, MA  and Concord, MA  brought to life the “The Shot Heard Round the World” and the battles fought in the Revolutionary War. 

The class also enjoyed a tour of “The House of Seven Gables” and the birthplace of Nathaniel Hawthorne. This was followed by a historical night tour of Salem, MA. 

Spring in Boston was fully experienced with a rainy walk and tour of the Boston Freedom Trail. The 8th graders especially enjoyed the Granary Burying Ground,  and were challenged with a game to find the tombstones of Samual Adams, John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin’s parents, and of course Mother Goose. 

The group enjoyed a tour of the MIT Museum and a walking tour of Harvard both in Cambridge, MA. Lunch in Cambridge was a highlight along with getting to see Northland alumni Max Gay, a current Harvard student. 

Free time was enjoyed one afternoon with a trip to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park along with some Boston shopping. The students and sponsors also got to experience a night of Candlepin Bowling and pizza,  and a performance by The Blue Man Group. 

Thank you teachers and parents who joined us on the trip. The students and adults learned a lot and enjoyed the experience together.
