The fourth grade from F.N. Brown elementary school recently visited Trenton as part of their social studies unit on New Jersey government.
They explored the Visitor’s Center where they found many exhibits including one in which they followed a ball through a maze that simulates the process a bill goes through to become law. They toured the State House, including the governor’s office, the Senate and General Assembly, and participated in a mock election for governor. Not surprisingly, outlawing homework was a very popular election platform.
The trip was sponsored by the Verona Board of Education and the F.N. Brown SCA.
