South Whidbey Intermediate School fourth- and fifth-grade classes, taught by Lisa Davis and Caryn Ploof, took part in a local history field trip on May 29 in a collaborative effort with the South Whidbey Historical Society. Members of the South Whidbey Historical Society shared the history of South Whidbey as they guided the classes through the South Whidbey History Museum.

The historical society also provided a guided historical walking tour of Langley. Davis and Ploof took the students on a beach walk which, in addition to Langley history, also explained natural history.

The South Whidbey Historical Society members providing local history instruction were Dick Hall, Sue Hoelscher and Carol Ryan.
