For this field trip, they had the SWAT team with their vehicles, the helicopter police who flew in and landed for all the children, and the K-9 team with their dogs for a demo. Each department talked to the children about their jobs, what's their requirements and what they do.
Due to the size of our group, we schedule 2 different days out there. Here's a slide show of some pics from that day.

In April, we went to the Zachary Historic Village for a hands-on learning experience on how life was back over 100 years ago.
Some of the groups from the different days that was we scheduled…
One room schoolhouse
(Here they learned how the kids of different ages learned together in one room along with the different limit supplies that were available to them.)
(They learned about how wagons, shucking corn, grinding corn into grits and corn meal, etc.)
(The kids learned how they had to pump their own water for washing their clothes, hang them to dry on the clothesline, the outhouse, mowing the yard with a manual mower, etc.)
(They learned how the homes were much smaller yet could hold many people, high ceilings for ventilation, iceboxes instead of refrigerators, sharing a room, bathing in a tub with a water pitcher, portable potty in the room, etc.)
