THE CHALKBOARD: Waugh students ace STEAM Challenge

Cinnabar School’s third-graders spent a day at Steamer Landing Park last week. The highlight of the day was being on the water in canoes and kayaks, a first-time experience for most of the students and chaperons. “We all wore life jackets, and started our journey at Steamer Landing’s dock. We paddled to the Haystack Landing drawbridge enjoying the scenery and wildlife along the way. We saw goslings in a nest with two Canada Geese making sure we didn’t get too close,” said teacher Lucienne Wurr. For some students, going under the drawbridge when a SMART train was crossing was the most exciting part of the journey. As students returned to Steamer Landing, they observed and identified aquatic invertebrates, wrote in their journals and played games as part of this exciting field trip that both students and chaperons will remember for a long time.
