Kids Build Tugs and Barges


March 02, 2009

Ketchikan, Alaska - Point Higgins' kindergarten students from Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Thomas' classes toured Tongass Forest Enterprises at Ward Cove recently.

During the tour of the facility, the students had a hands-on opportunity building wooden models of tugs and barges. In preparation for the tour, Ketchikan High School woodshop students had fabricated tugboat and barge kits and then assisted the younger students in building the models.
