Adventure at The Herald
This was our latest field trip, to the newspaper The Herald. We happened to come on a Friday when the "presses were running" which apparently does not happen often, so we were able to see the printer in full performance! We watched the papers going overhead, the workers gathering up the adds to placed inside them. We also learned how they made a the die to print the papers with. The kids say the most boring part was walking through the offices, we had to be quiet and there was not much to look at but a bunch of people sitting at desks looking at their computers or on the phone. It was still a nice adventure and next Friday the kids will be working on making a newspaper of their own!
