What do a haystacker, an RV, a classic 1954 Chevy, a fire engine, garbage truck, a 1948 John Deere tractor and a Harley Davidson all have in common? They all have wheels and all were at Sinclear Elementary School for the Oct.24 "Things That Go" event.

The exhibit of various vehicles was intended to illustrate vehicles as the first-graders study a "Things That Go" unit.

Modestan Jerry Hamby, who has an association with the school through a friend who is a teacher, brought by his restored 1948 John Deere tractor and answered questions such as why are the tires so large. He also allowed students to try out the metal seat and put their hands on the large steering wheel.

Ceres firefighters brought by a pumper and informed students of the various working parts of it. When the siren was blown they placed their hands over their ears.

Teacher Desirae Uhte donned leather and brought the Harley Davidson motorcycle that she rides with husband Luke.

Bertolloti Ceres Disposal brought by a garbage truck to show students.

Sinclear Elementary, which recently celebrated its being named a 2014 Distinguished Elementary School, is known for its unique programs. Last month the school hosted the fourth annual "Bring Your Parent to School Day." Each May the school hosts a Career Day in which a number of occupations are represented to students.
