Fourth Grade Visit to State House
On Thursday, March 27th, the fourth grade classes at EIS traveled to Indianapolis, touring the Indiana State House. While at the State House, students sat in the rotunda and learned more about the history and architecture of the building from state house docents. While touring the multiple levels of the spacious building, students and chaperones were invited into several of the state offices and the Indiana State Supreme Courtroom. Students were able to sit in the chairs of Indiana’s state senators and representatives, while docents explained the legislative process and history of the chambers themselves. Between rain showers, several classes were able to walk the downtown canal area, including a walk around the Indiana State Museum to find the 92 pieces of art that represent each of Indiana’s 92 counties. It was a memorable trip for all EIS fourth graders and chaperones.
