The Hudson Hike was a success! Our day was full of careful observing, joyful collecting, and courageous climbing!
Everywhere they looked, the children were able to find and delight in a piece of God’s creation.
Many of these things became a part of the children’s observational journals.
Every year, students try to push Big Booty (the rock) in the water. Every year we feel it gets a little bit closer! Maybe next year!
Next, came many of the children’s favorite part, the SCRAMBLE! We climb up steep hills with our bodies low to the ground. When they reach the top, children feel accomplished then look forward to the slide down.
Children pause to admire the beauty of the sun on the Hudson River and draw what they see.
We stopped at a beach to collect sea glass and driftwood.
We walked to the riverfront and read the story “The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Grey Bridge.”
We noticed that the lighthouse and the bridge were just like the ones in the story!
After the story, we loaded back up on the bus and had quiet time on the drive home. As you could guess, we were all very tired!
