News from The Voyagers

The Voyagers went on a whirlwind trip through time when they visited the Shelburne Museum this week.  There were so many activities helped us to experience and investigate life in Vermont from the seventeenth through the twentieth century  We participated in a dozen different hands-on sessions. Students were able to explore the Ticonderoga, visit a train station and send messages in Morse Code, decide who should go to jail in actual Vermont court cases, and even ride on a carousel that was over a hundred years old. A day of fun in the sun was had by all. The Voyagers want to send out a huge shout of 'thanks' to all the parents and family members who made this an incredible trip for all of us!
