Spanish 3 Field Trip
By: Devyn Worthley
On Tuesday, October 21st 2014, the students from Spanish 3 took a field trip to the Mattie Rhodes Center and ate lunch at Mi Ranchito. The class, consisting of Chelsea Matt, Casey Ordnung, Cassidy Myers, Jordan Kemp, Leeanna Burton, Taylor and Terri Pierce, Jessie Geivett, Sydney Admire, and Tommy Endicott, was accompanied by their teacher Senora Sue Matz.
They visited the Mattie Rhodes Center, which is a museum that showcases items that represent and involve the Hispanic community in Kansas City. Their tour guide, a former student of Senora Matz, was “really into the culture and had very interesting things to say,” according to the class. Junior Cassidy Myers thought that “the tour guide was one of my favorite things about the trip, and it was a great experience where we learned the importance of Day of the Dead."
Day of the Dead is celebrated in the Hispanic culture so people can really remember and celebrate memories made with love ones who have passed. The trip was ended with eating at Mi Ranchito after touring the center, making bottle caps and skulls made from sugar, and learning more about the Hispanic culture.
