Trolley Tour of French Philadelphia
April 27th, 2011
Do you know where Philadelphia’s “French Quarter” is? Do you know where the 1775 secret meeting between Benjamin Franklin and French King Louis XVI’s representatives took place? The Seventh and Eighth graders do, after taking a trolley tour of French influence in Philadelphia as part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts. After the tour, our group visited the Kimmel Center to view the Eiffel Tower replica and to snack on crepes and croissants. Special thanks go to Ms. Reistle as well as our student-teacher Monique Coval and the Alliance Francaise for arranging such a great opportunity!
