Touring Natchitoches


On Wednesday, September 14, the 6th grade class and their teacher, Mrs. Kara Bertke, took a field trip to Natchitoches, Louisiana, to visit Fort St. Jean Baptiste and the Melrose Plantation.

The students learned about frontier living and life on a plantation in the American South as they observed tour guides in authentic garb do demonstrations. One high point of the experience was watching the tour guide shoot his muzzle-loader. The class also helped plant a garden near the fort.
