Fifth Grade Trip to Sacramento

IMG_2810

Fifth graders traveled to Sacramento to learn more about the California State Capitol Museum.

Students went on a docent led tour of the building. This capitol building was the fifth. The building had been moved five times in the first four years. The Senate Chamber was very interesting.

Students were able to see the senators desks that were built in the 1860’s and are still used today.

In addition, the docent explained how a bill becomes a law in California. And that anyone can come up with the idea for a bill and submit it to their representative. One of the most important concepts they learned was that “We the People” are where the true power sits.
