Fulton second-graders learning at construction site

A trip to a construction site for a group of second grade students Wednesday, Feb. 17, at Carr Elementary in Fulton, Kentucky.

They put on their hard hats, then went to work.

They measured houses and fitted pipes. Their teachers say math, spelling and reading are involved. 

"It helps those of my students that need a little bit of movement throughout the day. They’ve really been able to get that movement out and been creative," Carr Elementary Teacher Tammy Malray says.

The students were able to dig through the dirt to find questions, and then dig through their books to find the answers.
