Tucker’s Dad came to our school today. He came to share about his job. We are learning about different jobs and different people in grade 2.
Tucker’s Dad is a carpenter and he builds houses. He also builds garages. He brought a skidsteer. He brought a trailer full of his cool tools. He had a hammer, a vacuum, a stapler, a welder, a nailer, a tape measurer, pliers, a jack hammer, a saw and a whole pile of nails. He has a chest plate. It is to protect him from getting hurt. He had pencils to use for drawing and tracing things. He does lots of Math every day.
Tucker’s Dad brought in gold for us to feel. Some of the gold was fool’s gold. It is really called pyrite. He is not a gold miner, but he cleans up the holes from mining. He makes the hole safe again. He got a piece of gold from a geologist.
He gave us yellow and orange hard hats. We also got Kinder eggs! He brought one of his co-workers, Danny, with him. At the end, we had a group picture.
Thank you, Ryan for showing us the rocks and telling us about your job.
