Middle School, 5 Day - St. Simons Island

The Journey

St. Simons is an island off the Georgia coast known for its salt marshes and sandy stretches like East Beach.  A museum traces the history of St. Simons lighthouse, rebuilt in 1872 after it was destroyed in the Civil War.  It is the largest barrier island in the Golden Isles and lies across the Marshes of Glynn, made famous by poet Sidney Lanier.

 

These Journeys are specifically designed with teachers, curriculum, and Service Learning components with outcomes linked to the learning.

Fort Frederica National Monument preserves the archaeological remnants of a fort and town built by James Oglethorpe between 1736 and 1748 to protect the southern boundary of the British colony of George from Spanish raids.  About 630 British troops were stationed at the fort.
