After a minute or so have the class come back together and discuss what they found interesting or what they learned today that they did not know before. Have students use their journals to write down things they had learned today that they had not previously known before. Encourage them to bring these notebooks to their walking tour field trip so that they can look at the facts they have written down so they could better understand the history of Kannapolis as they experience it in person!
