Most days, you would think the place was intentionally made to feel like a walk-in freezer with how powerful the air conditioning can be.
Managing a class of two-dozen 3rd graders can be a huge challenge, even with my teacher’s aid. Still, I can make things work if the kids are properly motivated! What I love to do is take the kids on field trips around town, and to show them places where they can learn valuable lessons. Most recently though, we went on a field trip that didn’t go quite as planned. See, my wife had encouraged me to take the kids on a field trip to this lovely museum on the other side of town. She explained that yes, the museum is very fancy – but there’s a great section for children. So, we went to that museum! What I forgot about though was how the museum is kept ice-cold all the time. Most days, you would think the place was intentionally made to feel like a walk-in freezer with how powerful the air conditioning can be. The air quality is absolutely perfect in that place though, as they have to keep the air clear and free of funny smells or any kind of air pollution. Anyway, I told my children to pack a jacket since it gets cold, but many of them still were “too cold” to enjoy the museum or kid’s area. While I was sad to leave early, I wasn’t going to force the kids to stay and be miserable! As it turns out, I was the one to learn a valuable lesson that day. Sometimes, all it takes is an overpowered air conditioning system to make kids eager to go back to class and do their work!
