Fifth-grade students from Waldo Pafford Elementary, along with their parents and second-grade teacher Nicole Carter, traveled to Washington in early June as part of the World Strides Discover Now Education program.
Students spent four days visiting and learning about the nation’s capital. The group stopped at the Washington Monument, Pentagon Memorial, White House, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and Holocaust Museum, among other sites. One of the highlights was a daylong visit to the Smithsonian Institute, National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of American History.
According to the organization’s website, World Strides is the largest educational-travel organization in the United States. About 300,000 students each year travel with World Strides.
