5th Grade Trip to Philadelphia


PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA– The fifth graders went to Philly, short for for Philadelphia, on Thursday, May 14, 2015. We went on a coach bus which included a bathroom and movies. Philly was a 2 or 3 hour trip from Pelham because we went from state to state to Pennsylvania.

We left at 7:30 a.m. and came back about 9:00 p.m. Also each class got a tour guide. My class got a tour guide called Steve. It was hot and sunny outside. Lots of students brought cameras and their phones to take pictures. We walked about 7 miles. In Philly we had to walk from place to place. We learned more about Benjamin Franklin that we didn’t know before.

Katie Valente, fifth grader, says, “It was fun and interesting.”

Lauren Evans says, “It was adventurous.”

Some famous or important places that were in Philly were Congress Hall and The National Liberty Museum, which has a gallery about some famous heroes that changed the world. We brought lunch, and for dinner we walked to a restaurant called Hard Rock Cafe. Basically the kids menu was weird because lots of them had burgers and I thought for dessert they would give ice cream, but instead they gave one chocolate chip cookie.

For the most part we all had lots of fun. We saw the Liberty Bell, which was interesting because we got to learn facts and information about it. Philadelphia was an amazing and an adventurous trip. I enjoyed it, I had fun, and I learned lots of new things that I didn’t know.
