I was impressed with our field trip to the Iowa Public Television station! Karen was our tour guide and she was great with the kids. Our group had students who were 2nd grade and younger. The tour was adjusted to their needs.
The children were given a scavenger hunt and pencil. This helps keep little hands from touching all the equipment.
The tour lasted around an hour but was fast paced and held the kids interest.
I have to confess that I never realized how much work and effort go into producing and airing the shows on IPTV! I learned a lot on this trip too!
As an adult, I have a new appreciation for IPTV after our tour. I would highly recommend this program for all age groups!
The highlight of the kid’s day was going on to the Kids Clubhouse set. Hosts Dan Wardell and Abby Brown came out to greet the kids and show them around. They spent lots of time with the kids and had a few fun surprises to show them.
