On Friday, October 19, the fourth grade class will travel to Lincoln, Nebraska. In their Social Studies classes they have been learning about the different levels of government: national, state, and local. Specifically, they have been reading about the uniqueness of our state government and its unicameral and bipartisan system.
In Lincoln, the students will take a guided tour of the State Capitol. The tour will include a walk through the magnificent rotunda, a look into the Nebraska Supreme Court, and a trip up the elevator to the observation deck.
After the tour, they will enjoy their sack lunches outside of Morrill Hall (weather permitting). After lunch the students will go on a guided tour of Morrill Hall, led by Mrs. Heather McIntyre-Haas. The tour includes a walk through the Paleontology of Nebraska, the Mesozoic Gallery, and the Hall of Nebraska Wildlife. We are looking forward to this wonderful Lincoln adventure!
