Abingdon Elementary School Fifth Graders Visit the Biltmore!

Students posing in front of the Biltmore estate.On November 3, 2017 the Abingdon Elementary Fifth Graders took a field trip to The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC as a culminating activity to their novel study of Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty.

What an amazing experience it was to see the setting of the story come to life! The students were able to see where Serafina, the main character, would have walked and explored the mysteries of the Biltmore.  In addition to reading the novel, the students learned about the history and unique details of the Biltmore Estate.  Another exciting part of the trip was that the students got to see the Biltmore decorated for Christmas. Everyone had a wonderful time!
