Virginia


Virginia is nicknamed the "Mother of Presidents" because of the eight U.S. presidents born there. The National Historic Landmarks are distributed across Virginia including Monticello, Williamsburg, Mt. Vernon, Montpelier and the Jamestown Settlement, providing hands on living history experience for students. The geography and climate of the Commonwealth are shaped by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Chesapeake Bay, providing opportunities for recreational and outdoor learning.
