Jefferson 4th Grade goes to Lincoln!



olmer3Mrs. Priebe’s and Mrs. Olmer’s 4th grade classes went on a field trip to Lincoln, NE.  The students rode down on the Panther bus and arrived at Memorial Stadium on a beautiful Spring day.  They were given the a tour of Memorial Stadium where they were shown the athletes living quarters, weight rooms, whirlpool rooms and emergency room areas where athletes are taken on site in case of an emergency.  They also saw several different uniforms the UNL football players have worn over the years and were able to look at the Heisman room where the past winners are on display with their trophy.  One of the most memorable moments the students had was getting to run down the red carpet and onto the field at the stadium.  The 4th graders were in awe and loved posing of several pictures.  After the stadium the 4th graders headed to the capital where they enjoyed a nutritional sack lunch provided by the Agricultural group.  The Ag students from UNL gave a presentation to the students telling them where each of the food items they were eating came from and did a Q & A on ag related issues.  Next they headed over to the main floor of the capital where they met with Senator Scheer and were able to ask him questions and then had free time to walk the capital.  They also had a tour guide to lead them and talk about the architecture and paintings of the capital and tell them several interesting facts about Nebraska.  Last but not least they were able to sit in on the senate in session and were introduced as a class to all the senate.  It was a wonderful experience for the 4th graders to get out of the classroom and see some of the things they have been learning about Nebraska all year.  They all had a great time!
