Seventh-graders at East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School took a field trip to Old Bethpage Restoration Village for Civil War Living History Day on May 15. The students spent the day participating in inquiry-based learning on the Civil War and its time period by visiting various stations, viewing artifacts and listening to speakers. Students also witnessed a battle reenactment, where Union soldiers fought against Confederate soldiers on the battleground. A special thanks to teacher Ms. Joyce Kenny for organizing the event.
