    Leading the way

    Enjoying our company

    Taking a break

    On our first Adventure we went hiking near Canyon Creek.  Our goal was to show caring to our CREW.  The students did this by sticking together, encouraging one another, helping our friends take risks, and listening to stay safe.  It was a great start to the year!

    Our current Expedition is focused on the Fur Trade, which happened here in our area.  On Friday we went to the Historical Center for a visit.  We learned more about the life of the Native Americans and voyageurs during the Fur Trade.

    Crushing Hazelnuts

    The students spent time inside the Historical Center, learning more about the seasonal migration of the Native Americans.  Expert, Mr. Dwight Morgan led the tour.  He let the students crush hazelnuts, which was a common food of the Native Americans.

    taking notes


    The students practiced "portaging" like the voyageurs did inorder to get around rough water.  Voyageurs had to carry 90 pound bundles on their backs.  Most of the time they carried two at once.  This was hard work!


    sharpening stone

    The students observed the sharpening stone, which Native Americans used to sharpen their spears and knives.fort


    To finish off our day, Mr. Morgan shot off his muzzle loader.  This was exciting!  It was a great day for learning.
