Fourth Graders visit Indiana's State House
Kristy Delp

Each year, the fourth grade at Mintonye Elementary travels to the Indiana State House for Statehood Day. Students see many different booths about Indiana. They meet President William Henry Harrison who talks about life in Indiana during his presidency. Also, students sit in the House of Representatives and the Senate seats to vote on a mock bill, and this year it was making pepperoni pizza the State Pizza. The vote was close, but it did pass. Please note that this was not a real bill. Students also had the opportunity to go view the courtroom and learn about our judges and our Judicial system. All in all, it is a great field trip.
