The 4th Grade Pilgrim Trip 2018
4th graders at George White learn about California History. Students complete projects on the California Missions and the Gold Rush. After reading Richard Henry Dana’s book, “Two Years Before the Mast”, 4th Graders at George White will travel back in time in this award winning program to the seafaring world of Richard Henry Dana Jr.’s Two Years Before the Mast. Students sign aboard as green hands for a two year “voyage” from Boston to Alta California in the 1830s. While immersed in early California history and working with a variety of dynamic historical characters, students gain skills in cooperative learning, teamwork, and communication as they hoist cargo, row long-boats, raise sails, stand night watch, swab the decks, and sing chanteys.
