Fourth graders from Anna ISD's Rattan Elementary traveled to Austin on an Education in Action Discover Texas Field Trip, Thursday, April 28, 2022, to experience what they are learning in Texas History. Students visited the Texas State Capitol and the Bullock Texas State History Museum.

During the charter bus ride to Austin, students discussed why Texans are so proud of their unique heritage and participated in activities and games in preparation for their visit. In Austin the students visited the Texas State Capitol where their legislators, The Honorable Drew Springer, State Senator, District 30 and The Honorable Scott Sanford, State Representative, District 70, office. Students saw first-hand where Texas laws are made as they toured the State Capitol including the Senate and House of Representatives chambers. At the Bullock Texas State History Museum students traveled back in time through the Texas Revolution and learned about the events that created our Lone Star identity. The students' visit to the museum concluded at the multi-sensory Texas Spirit Theater with the Star of Destiny where they saw and experienced the history of our great state including a gusher exploding from an East Texas oil derrick and the takeoff of Saturn V as seen from Mission Control at the Lyndon B.
