The Capitol 3/21/13

We’re off to the Capitol. We have spent a small amount of time in the Air and Space museum, but were going to do more Smithsonian after the Capitol. The Capitol is where the house and senate make our laws. Ask your students the difference in these two, they should know 🙂
Also, I learned that if a flag is flying on either side of the building that means that either the senate or house is in session. At night this can be seen by the light under Freedom. Can you tell if they are in session in my picture?

A painting in the Rotunda of the Capitol. Can you guess what it's showing?
