field trip - earthquake version

A couple of weeks ago, Carly's enrichment class (ACT) went on a field trip to University of Memphis's Earthquake Research Center.
Kenny was able to go which was a real treat for Carly
(and possibly Kenny too!) Field trips with her ACT class tend to be more enjoyable typically because there are fewer kids (12) and most kids have a parent. Possibly there are fewer behavior problems too.
Carly and I talked about the field trip when I picked her up from school. She told me what she saw and about a demonstration that the presenter did. It was a reminder of how much kids learn visually and by doing rather than listening. Kenny probably got more out of the presentation than Carly. I heard him passing on information including a website where you can check for daily earthquake action.
Carly took her camera and these are some of her shots.

I think think lunch at Garibaldi's might have been the highlight!
