GRADE 4 FIELD TRIP

A STUDENT PERSPECTIVE: WHITEWATER PRESERVE   

By Patricia Thompson  

     On Monday, May 16, the fourth grade class set off for an overnight field trip in cars.  Once there, we set up tents and ate lunch.  Shortly before going on a hike along Whitewater River we spotted a big horn sheep on the mountain nearby our camp.  After the hike we played Capture the Flag and told stories.  Then we had dinner.  A little while after dinner, when it was getting dark, we had hot chocolate, brushed our teeth and went to bed.

 

     We woke early the next morning to pack up the tents and eat breakfast.  Then we drove to the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation where we met with an Indian ranger who told us not to whine.  I liked the hummingbirds that were there.  They were very tame.  We hiked roughly three miles and played in the river.  Then we had lunch and drove back to school.
