A trip around the world/street

During the field trip, students traveled the world — by foot — on Mitchell Street. They’ve been studying cultures throughout the school year, so they were ready — from Anmol Restaurant (Pakistan) to Mr. Diaz’s immigration story (Columbia) to Think Resale’s owner Dimity (Australia) to AP Foods (India) to Lopez Bakery (Mexico) and beyond.
