Join Natalie and her fourth-grade class as they learn all about Seattle! Lakes, mountains, and forests surround this Emerald City. Find out how Seattle began as a lumberjack town, the dream of Arthur Denny, an enterprising businessperson who led the first group of non-Native settlers to Seattle. Destroyed by a fire, Seattle was reborn to serve customers worldwide—first as a port for Klondike prospectors, then as a builder of World War II warbirds, and today as world headquarters for Microsoft and Starbucks. Not just for coffee and raincoats, Seattle prides itself on a thriving arts community, as seen in the Experience Music Project and Olympic Sculpture Gardens. Travel with Natalie’s class as they spend a week in Seattle. They’ll visit classic destinations, like Pike Place Market and the Space Needle, and experience Seattle’s fun and funky neighborhoods. It’s a trip you won’t forget!
