Fifth Graders Take a Trip to Nebraska City

Story image 1_0



The Freeman 5th graders enjoyed a field trip to Nebraska City on Wednesday, April 27.  The day started with a visit to the Nebraska Center for Education for the Visually Impaired. The school was founded in 1875 and serves students from all over Nebraska and Iowa. We met several of the students and they showed us the technology they use in their everyday lives.  The Freeman students took part in some simulation activities to show what it would be like to have a visual impairment.  We ate lunch with the students and enjoyed some engaging conversation.  After the tour of the school, we traveled to the Lewis and Clark Center.  We watched a video about Lewis and Clark and took a tour of the museum.  There were several interesting exhibits for the students to view.  The most popular was the life size replica of a keel boat.  Towards the end of the tour, we were fortunate to be able to go into an earth lodge and hike on a trail that overlooks the Missouri River.  It was a wonderful day for the 5th grade and the teachers and the kids were very respectful and well-behaved.  We would like to thank our bus driver, Kenny Reed, for a wonderful trip and Launa Ford, our parent sponsor, for helping supervise.   It’s hard to believe the school year is almost over, but we would like to thank the students and parents for an awesome year.  It’s been very enjoyable and hopefully this trip will provide many memories for the students for years to come.
