MERIDIAN — Parkview Elementary School fourth graders, from left, Jeremy Lee, Auzhuric Bailey, Tyler Townsend and Nadia Hill work at The Hershey Company packaging store during a recent virtual field trip of the Pennsylvania chocolate company. Prior to the virtual tour,fourth grade students researched what it would take to actually make the trip to Pennsylvania, including flight costs, hotels and attractions to write a proposal for an actual field trip.The students also created and filmed commercials and developed PowerPoint presentations highlighting the tour and what the costs for an actual trip would be. The whole school got to take a virtual walk through the museum, see the

packaging process in the Hersey Factory, ride on the roller coaster, have their picture taken in a photo booth, and receive a package of chocolate from the Hershey Store.
