POPLAR BLUFF – The second annual Transportation Day at the Poplar Bluff Kindergarten Center took place on Friday, Nov. 7, during which students had the chance to see various modes of transportation in action.
Thanks to community partners willing to show off their wheels (and hooves), students learned about the classic car, dirt bike, hearse, horse, mule, party bus, segway, semi truck, snowplow, steam engine, tow truck and tractor, as well as emergency vehicles from the police, highway patrol, military, ambulance, sheriff and fire department.
Organized by kindergarten instructor Pennie Ethridge, the Fun Friday director, the activity coincided with a teaching unit recently completed.
