HMS Victory Docks in Ms. Larsen’s Room!

"No way, someone made that!" 
"We get to keep that in our classroom?!?!" 
"That is so cool!" 
"Did ships really look like that?"
 "I wish I could take a ride on a ship like that!"
"Was that a real ship?"
These are just a few of the comments that came out of the mouths of the foruth-graders when they came into the room and saw the four-foot-by-four-foot replica of the HMS Victory. Manitou Springs Elementary School was ecstatic to learn that the HMS Victory was being donated by the family of Mr. Robert Campbell Jr. The HMS Victory was a British Revolutionary War ship and it took Mr. Campbell many years to build. Mr. Campbell's family wanted their father's most demanding model to become a beacon of curiosity and to inspire our students to ask questions, just like their father loved to. The model of HMS Victory is currently docked in Mrs. Larsen's fourth-grade classroom. The Victory can connect to student learning throughout our fantastic CKLA curriculum, so she plans to set sail to other classrooms to support the learning of these domains: American Revolution and Treasure Island (4th grade), and the Age of Exploration (5th grade). The donation was facilitated by MSES dad Stephen Hale, who met the Campbells in a business transaction and supported their generation enhancement of the school his daughters, Sophie and Skyla, attend!
