Yesterday the 4th and 5th grades went to Savannah, Georgia. We each were allowed to bring one chaperone, and I chose my mom. (Partly because my dad was out of town.) When the big day came, I had to get up at 6:00, AM. My mom brought a lot of snacks, a Lego “Heroica” Poster, and lunch. At Savannah, we first went to the Savannah History Museum, and watched a mini movie. Then, we went to the First African Baptist Church, and got to go to the basement to see where slaves used to hide. There were decorations that were actually holes so the slaves could breath. Then, we went to the city market and had 45 minutes to eat lunch and go shopping. I went shopping with my mom and Itamar, who got a toy gun. I wanted to get an angry birds T-shirt, but it was too big. Then this guy named Bill Mclntosh showed us around, and we also went to this guy “Tamo Che-che‘s” grave. Then, we went to Old Fort Jackson, and became temporary soldiers. After we were done “training,” we got to watch them fire a cannon. I learned that in the Civil War, you were more likely to die of a disease than being shot. My favorite part of the trip was when we watched them fire the cannon. When we got home, I went straight to bed.
