Another fun outing with our FIAR group when we toured UNC TV.
This is our statewide TV network with many types of programs from cartoons to pottery, from woodworking to news, from history to current events - something for everyone. We divided into 2 groups based on age. The youngest children toured first.
We learned so much on this tour about the way things are operated and the extent to which these networks reach families. The children were fascinated to have a peek at the MANY monitors that must be watched. We learned that there is a 5 second delay in programming that was instituted after the Super Bowl debacle. It doesn't seem like nearly enough time though to catch something unless you are really quick!
Afterward we headed to the park to picnic and play. It was a nice, but cool day and I took no pictures there. Just enjoyed hanging out with my friends.
I love field trip days. To me, this is one the best ways of learning - experiencing something in a hands-on manner.
