• The First Field Trip On the Miss Freeport IV

    By Elijah

     

                On a Monday, October 1, we went on a boat called the Miss Freeport.

    We did a lot of stuff on the boat like study about sea creatures, and we learned how to tell how cold the air and the water are. We also learned how to use a fishing rod, and after lunch we actually went fishing. Almost everybody caught a fish or a crab. My friend, Julia, caught the biggest fish of the day.

                In the morning, we did different stations. There were five stations in all. My favorite was station four because I learned how to use a real fishing rod. Someone caught a spider crab, and it was huge and black. The first station was learning how to tell how cold the water and the air are. The second station was learning how deep the water was.  The third station was about plankton. The fourth station was learning how to use a fishing rod. The fifth station was about the dredge and touch tank.

                The field trip was really fun and the boat was really cool.
