Children's Organization Guide to Services for the Emporia Area

Mr. Ferree's Fourth Grade Class (Village Elementary School, Emporia, Kansas, USA) put together this reference guide to help Emporia area children learn about area organizations that provide services children can access themselves. Students gathered the information through interviews (both face to face and over the telephone), Internet searches, reading telephone books, and reading printed materials from the organizations (see credits below). Students (as their contribution to these services) constructed two puzzle pages to test the reader's knowledge of home and babysitting safety. Please let us know of any errors, additions, or corrections you may have. (Our email address is listed below.)
