How the City Works

Our field trip to a nearby Department of Public Works was a hit once again. Two years ago we had our first opportunity to participate in this hands-on informative open house. When the chance came around again, I jumped at it! The kids were divided into age groups of 6-10 kids and taken to 12 different stations where they could touch, try, and learn about the way a city works. From the sewer to the parks, each public works department was represented and cheerful helpful city workers explained their duties with patience and smiles. The biggest hit was, of course, the ride in the "cherry picker" truck, but so many other interesting exhibits made the field trip memorable for all.
