Cycle Construction team member Troy David visited the PreK 3 class at St. Dominic School today with a Peterbilt 600 horse power tractor truck from our heavy haul fleet. These future construction professionals got an up-close look at a “big truck” and they are ready to work!
Exploring through touch, the children got “hands-on” experience by sitting in the driver’s seat for a pretend test drive. They also learned through discovery by visiting each side of the truck and counting the number of wheels. And they correctly counted 12 wheels.
Afterwards, the children lined up to see how many of them it would take to equal the length of the truck. It took 32 children to equal the length of this truck.
Troy was available to answer all of the great questions about the heavy equipment and his job at Cycle.
We’d like to thank PreK teachers, Ms. Shannon and Ms. Melissa, for sharing your precious cargo with us! With these kids on the job, our future is bright!
