5th grade visits Rock Creek

5th Grade students took a field trip to Rock Creek near Camanche.  They learned about wildlife on the Mississippi while they took a pontoon ride on the river.  The naturalist stopped the boat in a sand pit area so students could get out and collect interesting river rocks.  They got to learn how to steer a kayak and canoe in the backwaters.  Students learned the proper way to shoot a bow and arrow and all the safety precautions you need to take as you participate in this sport.  The 5th graders enjoyed working together while participating in team-building games.  It was a fun-filled day!
