Truck Safety Talks

In Week 2, Term 2, Lake Rerewhakaaitu School took part in a Truck Safety Talk.  We learnt about truck blind spots...if you cant see the driver he cant see you.  Never stand too close to the road as a moving trucks air can pull you under.  Trucks travel fast and have heavy loads so they take a lot longer to stop.
We got to count the logs, wheels..this truck had 32 wheels!  We got to climb up and into the cab to have a look at the controls and honk the horn!
We learned that a tree has age rings..most of these trees on this truck were 25 years old.
