CLARK – Recently the fourth grade classes at the Frank K. Hehnly School in Clark, traveled to Trenton to learn about the legislative process, the planets and stars, and the Revolutionary War, all in the same day.

The learning adventure began as students toured the New Jersey State Museum and visited the Planetarium.

Then students traveled through the State House visiting the Governor’s office and both houses of the Legislature.

Finally, the students experienced a living history tour at the State Barracks as their tour guides took them through various pieces of the Revolutionary War and life back in the 1700’s.

“The students enjoyed all aspects of the field trip,” explained fourth grade teacher, Stephanie Philippakos.  “It is so powerful when our students get to experience and see in action what they have been learning in school. It helps to reinforce what we read and discuss in our classrooms and it gives students a real life perspective.”
