Our future representatives - Mayor Clover and the City Councilmembers
After visiting the McConnell Mansion led by our Docent Sandra Kelly, we ate lunch at the 1912 Great Room (Thanks Jenny Kostroff!) because it was pouring rain. We went to the 3rd Street Gallery in City Hall and viewed the installation there called Restoration. I knocked on her door and City Clerk, Laurie Hopkins, talked about her job and then let the kids into the chamber. It was a good conversation about the building and what government does.
Then, we walked to Friendship Square and the kids got to play there.
Once back in our classroom, we talked about why this field trip went so well. They said it was because they did what they were supposed to do-- school thinking and doing! Yay!
Thanks to the parents and grandparents that joined us!
