Lesson on Public Transportation

I have noticed how difficult it is for a few of our Maids to catch the bus after they get back from cleaning each day.  The schedules seem very confusing to me.  So Ashlyn and I decided to incorporate that into our 6th grade lesson plan this week.  She had to figure out the fastest bus route for us to take down to work.  And then she had to get us home by a certain time.  It was pretty interesting.  So we bought 2 day passes and headed on our way last Friday.  Little did we know when we planned the day that it would be 34 degrees out while we were early to our bus stop!  We had to switch buses down to work, but got to stay on the same bus home.  It was a fun adventure!  We need to take the boys one day Ashlyn said.

Platte Purchase Road)at 2800 NW 100th Street, KC, MO, 64154. Enter in the Main Entrance of the Park to the left (you'll see a big park sign) and stay on the road until the parking lot at the end of the street. There will be baseball fields behind your parked car. Start walking west on the paved trail in the parking lot toward a wooded area and away from the
