LAHSC Teen Class

  The Licking Area Home School Co-op (LAHSC) held its second monthly session last Friday, Oct. 4, at Rock Springs Baptist Church. The teen class participated in car maintenance as their Life Skill for this session. The mechanic, Kenny Edgar, from Rinne’s Tire, kindly joined the teens to educate them in the ways of checking their cars’ basic fluids and tire pressure. Also included in the lesson was how to measure the tread on a tire with a penny and how to change a tire if something ever happened on the road. He discussed with them how to choose the right mechanic, the basics of car inspections, the difference between summer and winter maintenance, and the importance of washing your car. The teens then dispersed into teams for a hands-on quiz on all they had learned. I am glad to say the author’s team won.
