Our Savior Lutheran Third Graders Visit Tacoma, WA

On Friday we traveled by van to Tacoma, Washington to visit a sawmill. We learned that most of the lumber used in the West Region comes from this area.

We talked about all the uses of lumber that we use today.

Do you know how much wood the United States uses a year? We use enough wood each year to make a walkway that is 30 feet wide and that would reach all the way to the moon! That is a lot of lumber.

To help us remember what we learned, we each made something out of wooden craft sticks to put into our scrapbooks.
