The students in the TAG program in the Adams County Ohio Valley Local School District recently made an end-of-the-year field trip to the city of Chicago. Here, the students are shown in front of the city’s skyline.

The gifted students from the Adams County/ Ohio Valley School District who participate in the Talented and Gifted program recently visited the great city of Chicago, Illinois.  The third through sixth grade students first completed three units on medieval times, ancient Egypt and architecture to prepare for their adventure in the Windy City.  The students all learned about life in the Middle Ages and how to become a knight, as well as the different architectural styles, periods, elements and famous architects throughout history.
While in Chicago the students, parents, and teachers visited the Navy Pier, Millennium Park, and the Magnificent Mile.  They explored the top of Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) which is America’s second tallest building.  The group also had the opportunity to float down the Chicago River on an architecture cruise where they learned about the history of the city and its architecture.
The TAG students also visited the dolphins and beluga whales at the Shedd Aquarium, and saw the nation’s largest mummy collection and “Sue the T-Rex” at the Field Museum of Natural History.   The group also spent an evening at Medieval Times, a dinner theater show where the students watched the King’s most powerful knights fight to save the kingdom.
The group had a blast seeing what they have learned in their TAG classes brought to life before their eyes.
