6th grade


Our 6th graders recently had the opportunity to enhance their study of American history with a visit to the Magnolia and Oakland Plantations in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Led by Park Rangers, they were able to hear the history of the plantations and their owners as well as that of the enslaved people who worked the land. Students had a chance to walk inside and explore the quarters of those who lived there as well as to see the site of a Civil War skirmish, a Gin Barn, and the largest Cotton Press in the United States.
