Arlington National Cemetery

We took a trip to Arlington National Cemetery to view the changing of the guards. Students were able to ask questions of an actual guard and learned how to tap their shoes just like the soldiers do. We had a wonderful time.

"I made it with another art teacher named Ms. Roz. I made it with salt and liquid water colors. I wanted to put it on the blog because it is very big and it has dots and other things in it."-Gracie
