Students at Rocky Point Christian Academy hit the road last week to learn more about the state's history.

Excited students first visited the Alamo and then the state capitol building in Austin. Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Ryan McKittrick gave students a behind-the-scenes tour of the capitol building. Then they headed to San Antonio.

Grace Lowrance, a fifth grader, said she didn't have a favorite stop.

"I loved it all!" she said. 

But a few said the Alamo was their favorite.

"The Alamo was really cool because we got to see a cannon that shoots five pound cannonballs," said third grader Caden Green.

Other students echoed Green's statement.

"My favorite part was learning about all the interesting and bizarre things at the Alamo," Luke Whitsell, a sixth grader, said.

Rocky Point officials said students in grades three through six went on the trip, including Stella Ballew, Zoe Birdwell, Lily Fangman, Jacob Foster, Topher Foster, Caden Green, Charlie Hughes, Logan Lancaster, Grace Lowrance, Aaron Martinez, Shyla Smith, Luke Whitsell and Madison Whitsell.
