Finley Middle School seventh-grade teams Durham and McGahan went to Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, on Nov. 9. Students walked around the 19th-century reconstructed village learning about life in early America. There they boarded whaling ships and visited shops, like the cooperage, blacksmith and printer’s office, to examine artifacts. They were even able to “attend class” in a one-room schoolhouse and saw firsthand how classes were conducted back in the 1800s.
