Newspaper! Get Your Newspaper!

The actual printing press.
Our field trip for May took us to the Jefferson City News Tribune. We toured the printing facility and learned what goes into putting the paper together. The kids loved the room with the huge rolls of paper and thought it would be a good place for a game of hide and seek.  Another favorite was watching the machine that puts the inserts into the newspapers.

Watching inserts being inserted.
A big thank you to Sam, who gave us a wonderful tour.

Huge rolls of paper.
