TICONDEROGA - Eighth grade students in Kari Millard's French classes from Ticonderoga Middle School took a trip to Montreal, Quebec, recently.
A group of 28 students and seven adults spent the day taking in the French Canadian culture of Montreal. The group started out by visiting the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The group walked through the cathedral, took pictures, lit candles in memory of loved ones and took in all of the details.
After the cathedral, the students broke up into pre-selected groups with one of the chaperones and were able to decide what they wanted to do. The students had to stay in Old Montreal or Chinatown. They were able to choose where to go for lunch and what else to visit.
During the five hours in Quebec, the students did some shopping, spoke some French and watched street performers on Place Jacques Cartier.
