Is it really a good use of time to have elementary students, including Kindergartners(!) sit outside in the hot sun for over an hour for an earthquake drill? Just sitting, for over an hour! Why go to school! The teacher said it was good practice for them. I just don't get that.
Really the drill is for the adults so they can know exactly what to do in case of this emergency. So, I saw a whole gaggle of adults over in the shade doing their "drill" while the whole elementary student body sat in the sun. One little boy came up to the teacher and told her he was hot. Sorry, nothing could be done. I was supposed to be their to take the kids to the computer room.
I left to go to the grocery story (after I made this blog). Zak texted me (correct grammar??) then that he was just starting his 2 hour earthquake drill. Now, I am sure the high school students will find some enjoyment out this.
