Our Trip to Lansing – the Capitol Building and the Michigan Historical Museum

Our class went on a great field trip to Lansing this week. We were very excited to not only tour the Michigan Historical Museum and the Capitol building, but also we were able to meet with Representative Proos and Senator Jelenik. As a class we were even introduced in the House. When asked what part of the trip was their personal favorite, this is each student’s response:

My favorite part about Lansing was when the Republicans were in session. I also liked the Fresnel lens in the museum.
