Today we had a mom in to teach us about trains and train safety. Someone asked if trains gave off carbon dioxide and our special visitor said that CN Rail is working to lower their carbon emissions.
Trains are so cool! Trains carry lots of things so that stores are stocked with all of the clothes, food and things we need to live.
People who work with trains have special safety gear to keep them safe.
We should be at least 10 giant steps back from the railway when a train is going by. We always need to watch and listen carefully. A train will honk its horn and blow its whistle if it comes near a train crossing.
Our special guest showed us the website http://www.cn.ca where there was a railway safety quiz (we got all the answers correct!) and there were stories about railway safety.
We also saw a short video called “Rover the Rabbit:Train Your Brain”.
Thank you to our special guest for teaching us all about railway safety and thank you also for the fun goody bags from CN Rail!
