Parents and students in California are very familiar with the California missions. They are a significant part of our states history. Study of the missions takes on a life of itself as elementary students learn about the mission history through hands on experience through a variety of study projects that often include building models of the various missions along with other artistic projects. My oldest daughter took a unique approach and assumed the role of news reporter to create a video of a local mission.
