For our 3rd. Quarter Honor Roll Field Trip, the high school students went to Waterloo. In Waterloo we visited the John Deere Tractor Assembly Plant, where they assemble all of the tractors. I learned some cool things, such as: John Deere tractors are shipped all over the world and the reason John Deere tractors are green and yellow is because in spring the fields are green and in harvest the fields are yellow. After we finished up at John Deere, we stopped at McDonalds for lunch and then visited KNWS FM (locally known as Life 101.9). We toured the station and learned a lot of new things. The most exciting part of the field trip was the fact that we got to be on the radio.
