We had a wonderful walking field trip to the post office last Tuesday!  The snow had finally melted, and the temperatures were warm enough to walk all the way into town with this adorable crew!

In the picture above they are yelling “Post Office” at the corner!

Before we went behind the scenes, the children got to view the drop box for the mail.  A few children brought letters, and dropped them in the mail.  Some of the letters were written to family and even some letters were written to school!  We can’t wait to read them in school when they arrive!

Then we got to go inside the post office, and see all of the action.  The picture below is all of the PO boxes.  D and his Mom searched all around and found their PO Box!

Next we learned about the sorting stations.  Each of our mailmen or women sorts our mail every morning, and then they deliver our mail in the afternoon.  The post office estimates that they deliver to 5,000 houses or units a day!

Our favorite part of the trip was going out back and getting to see where the big packages are delivered!  We even got to ride the lift up and down.

The last part of our tour was learning about the scales and how they weight the packages to be mailed.  I was hoping they liked this part after all of our work with weights and scales this fall!

Then we viewed the different types of stamps you could purchase, and the post office gave us a wonderful book as a souvenir.  All in all it was a fantastic trip!  Thank you for all of the parents that helped out with the children while we were at the post office!

A happy crew walking home:)  I can’t wait for our next adventure!
