Mrs. Virginia Cook’s Washington Center class recently visited the Home Depot for a Community Based Instructional trip. While touring the facility, the class talked with the employees about their jobs. Students learned how to choose a paint color and the difference between spray paint and canned paint. Personnel in the lumber yard demonstrated different types of wood for a variety of projects. The favorite departments were the lighting fixtures and ceiling fans where discussions were about how a light fixture worked from the ceiling and about turning them on and off. Students also learned about different types of energy efficient light bulbs that save electricity.
Students and staff from Mrs. Virginia Cook’s Washington Center class learned about home improvement during a recent trip to Home Depot.
