HollyBee Posted November 13, 2012 Share Posted November 13, 2012 As we were gearing up for grammar, we spotted action on the street in front of our house. Being the awesome homeschool mom that I am (ha ha--I'm really not), we ditched grammar for a mini field trip! We learned all about sewers and the maintenance involved. We got geometry, physics, chemistry, biology, materials, geography, public health, and probably other lessons. The guys were so sweet to the kids, and answered all their questions. The head guy brought out a map of the local sewer system and explained all about it. We even tied it in with ancient Greek history, as we found out that there is an Archimedes screw that pushes the concrete through the hose (we figured out that that was what it was, based on the description the guy gave us). I love it. Well worth missing grammar for that. And so much more interesting than just reading about it in a book. :hurray: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
