GSMS A Trip to Biltmore Brings a Novel to Life
Mon, December 19, 2016
Sixth grade students at Glade Spring Middle School read and were captivated by Robert Beatty’s book, Serafina and the Black Cloak. So a trip to Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC made this imaginary story come to life in the very real setting.
Students were led through the vast stately rooms, leading down to the cavernous basement of the Biltmore Estate. The tour included the bowling alley, the pool, the dining rooms, the bedrooms, the Halloween room, and the exterior of the house. Rarely do readers get the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of their favorite characters, but this experience brought the adventures to life.
