PeeWee Field Trip: Metro (and a bonus Hickman field trip!)
To go with Lisa's lessons a few weeks ago about trains (see here and here), we took the kids on a field trip to ride the metro.
Before we went down the escalator into the station, Lisa reviewed what they had learned about passenger trains. And firmly laid down some safety rules for our trip.
I was so inspired by how much the PeeWees loved this field trip, talking about the trains, and the tickets, and the lights, and the stops, and the escalators and elevators, that I knew my other girls would love it, too. We never take the metro anywhere, mostly because driving is faster, and we always seem to be pressed for time. But last Saturday Ed was in class, and I had a whole empty day to do something fun with the girls. I saw in the newspaper they were doing a family event at the National Museum of American Art for Presidents' Day. That's right by a metro stop. So we did it.
