Maritime & Teddy Bear Factory

We didn’t let a little rainy weather ruin our field trip today.  We had a GREAT day at the Maritime Museum in Vergennes and the Teddy Bear Factory in Shelburne! 

At the Maritime Museum we learned how Lake Champlain played an important role in Revolutionary War. We saw a video of the Battle of Valcour Island, held cannon balls on the replica of the Philladelphia II, and learned how blacksmiths and boat builders were critical to both sides during the Revolutionary War. 

At the Teddy Bear Factory we saw how teddy bears are made and repaired.  I took as many pictures as possible.  Enjoy the slide show!
