Last Friday, the first grade went with the Kindergarten and 2/3 class on the Hudson Hike! It was a beautiful day for a hike. We started the day with a bus ride, keeping our eyes open for the Great Gray Bridge and the Little Red Lighthouse.
When we got off the bus, we gathered to hear about how to take care of God’s creation and how to hike in a way that would give us the best chance of observing wildlife!
On the hike, we got to search for natural objects, check out mushrooms, insects, and plants, go on scrambles and explore the various beaches exposed by the low tide.
The Hudson Hike required stamina for walking, bravery for scrambling, and curiosity for exploring: the first graders demonstrated all of these characteristics!
At the end of our day, we read the story of the Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge and drew line drawings to reflect on the story.
