Hands-on government trip

ILMS Ohio Statehouse visit

Indian Lake Middle School eighth-graders, from the left, Lexi Lones, Kaitlyn Boberg, Cayden Nessler, Layla Yoakam, Nathan Worrell and Lane McPherson check out an interactive display at the Ohio Statehouse during a recent eighth-grade field trip for a hands-on government experience. ILMS Co-Principal Missy Mefford reports they participated in a guided tour, explored both the House and Senate Chambers, learned about all three branches of state government and asked many questions. “The students especially liked the interactive section where they can use the touch screen displays to balance the state budget and see how taking money away from one part of government affects other areas,” the co-principal said.
