We had a great field trip last week to Denver District Court and had the priviledge of watching our justice system in action. Our special thanks to the Honorable Brian Whitney for spending his lunch hour with the kids answering questions and explaining how the court system works (including the super secret holding cell and tools they have for keeping prisoners from escaping while on trial!). In class, we are working on understanding our identity as a nation, the development of foreign policy and President's Jackson's plans for expansion.
