    The Nemaha Central seventh grade went on a field trip to the Topeka Capitol Building Wednesday, October 10. Tour guides led the seventh graders on a tour throughout the building. The tour guides showed them lots of interesting artifacts about the state of Kansas, including the constitution. They talked a lot about some of the great people of Kansas. In the Capitol building, there are a lot of interesting photographs painted on the walls and ceilings. Students were able to see both the House and the Senate rooms and learn about the history of the construction of the rooms.

    A favorite by many of the seventh graders was being able to go to the top of the building and step outside and walk around the top of the dome area. Later on, students ate their lunches that they brought in the eating area of the Capitol. One of the last stops of the tour of the Capitol Building was the gift shop. Many of the seventh graders brought home a souvenir from their adventures at the State Capitol. Lastly, the traditional class picture on the steps of the Capitol building was taken. After the picture, the students were ready to head back to Senaca. Once they arrived back, they went to the city park to enjoy the rest of the time before school was released. It was a fun learning experience for the seventh-grade students.     

    Carter Rottinghaus said,” It was awesome to go up to the dome.”

    Mya Ganstrom said, "It was cool to see everything in Topeka from the dome."
