The kids learn about lighthouses

Thanks to a wonderful couple, Diana & Don Carter, we were able to see examples of lighthouses around the world then create one that actually lit up from paper towel tubes, babyfood jars, and strips of paper. Some of the group got adventurous and made a cone-shapped roof on the lighthouse. Upon re-examining the pictures, doors and windows were added to nearly all the projects. We did not put on the walks around the light but most of the kids did learn how a real light house operated and many asked about the attached houses and the lighthouse keepers. I am including the link to the Carter's adventures in lighthouses: website "Lighthouses: A Photographic Journey". http://light.pkinst.org/
