In San Antonio, they visited the Alamo, the San Jose Mission, El Mercado, Fiesta Texas and the famous Mi Tierra Cafe’. Zoe and Malia Gattis shared their thoughts on the trip below…

Texas Trip

By Zoe and Malia Gattis

We really enjoyed this Texas trip. We loved getting to travel to Austin, tour the capitol, visit the Alamo and San Antonio. It was interesting to see everything we had learned about in Texas history in real life. Walking around the Riverwalk, visiting El Mercado and having dinner at Mi Tiera was cool. But the best part was getting to go on an amazing trip with our classmates and getting to really bond and make lasting memories. I would recommend every 7th grader to go on this trip! It’s a great opportunity to get to know your classmates better and to reinforce what you learned in Texas history.
