Sounds like fun and a bit of a challenge to find. The teacher said to look around in our area and some students gave us our first clue. Torrance High.
So off we went after karate class which is only a few blocks away and the future high school of my boys. :)
It's a good lesson to really pay attention to the things around us because we might see some really cool details. It's also amusing because Tyler kept reminding me that the pictures needed to be in black and white so I kept telling him that we can change that in the computer. :)
The other 2 types were where our investigative skills came into play. Google helped but some of the places are kind of far. I did see a mention of the Inglewood Park Cemetery which is nearby so off we went to explore.
As soon as we drove in, I slowly rolled by and right away, Tyler says, "Over there!" This place has some really old crypts and headstones/monuments which is totally cool. I didn't even know this cemetery was here just past Hollywood Park and The Forum.
He spotted the ionic style column right away so Tyler was pretty excited. I said that I would continue to drive around and see what else he could find. :)
Well, Tyler found the doric style too. It was fun to see the kids get involved and entertained. Josh was reading the inscriptions while doing math calculating how long people lived or how long ago a person passed away. Education!
It was a gorgeous day to spend with the boys...
