TEN- ETY GLASSES T A K E N ON EXCURSIONS AS SCHOOL WORK DR. GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Psychologist. In certain European countries, especially the Scandinavian countries, it has been a school custom for I don't know how many years, Jor teachers to go on long or short journeys with their children, on foot. On the way, many observations of nature are recorded and discussed on their return, as well as industrial, civic and sociological developments. In Russia, last summer, I saw ever so many groups of children going places with their teachers. The school excursion rapidly is developing in North America, too. Recently I was visiting in a school building in Battle Creek, Mich., where I was told :that the kindergarten children had gone with their teacher to'see a train come in. In a Cleveland school one April afternoon, I saw a group of second graders going out to the park with notebooks and pencils to see birds. Most Thrilling Trip. My youngest boy, now in junior high, has reported several times a year, some excursion his class has taken, since he first entered school. In several instances his mother or I. went along, providing transportation. His most thrilling trip was during his . sixth grade when his class went just before Christmas to an old ladies' home to sing. Christmas carols. His latest visit'was to the water supply of,oui; city. At the dinner table he gave' an interesting account of it, explaining many of the scientific principles involved. In ijany' cities classes of children constantly are visiting museums. You and I know many parents -vyho make frequent trips with their children to art mu- I scums, museums of natural history and historic places. Rich Background. Such trips . give the children much to, think about and talk about at school and home and parents who care gain thereby profitable comradeship with their .children. One school purpose, with young children, is to afford them a rich background of interest in oral expression and in learning to read. Often .the children old enough to write develop their written compositions about these trips. ...; . Recently I received a letter signed:. "Kathryn Hanson, secretary, ·student council of the E. R. H. club,".! from a one room rural school at Waterford. Pa. "We saw the piece in the paper you wrote-about our student coun- . cil, and we were very proud of it. "A number of us went last August to see £ Mr. Hayes, a teacher who taught at our school in 1887, and put on a student council program for him." What a fine thing to do! Why not more such school visits to homes of some of the old people who were once leaders in the community? A school visit by some o£ them, when they would tell about their childhood days, also would be valuable educational practice. water and wash it out--after ten minutes or, so--in hot water and soap suds; (3) stains on brass or copper, use equal portions of salt and vinegar. Bay Window Helps. In remodeling old houses, the room with a bay window has a distinct advantage/An ultra-modern effect can be obtained by building in a window seat, or placing tne new sectional couches i,i the bay, and curtaining the window with full, straight curtains.
