Thursday, October 28, 2010 LEISURE DAY AT ANNETT NATURE CENTER Friday, Sept. 24, sixth grade middle school students went to Annett Nature Center for the annual Leisure Day interdisciplinary experience. The students had six different opportunities to explore creative ways to use their 1.eisure time. These activities included canoeing, fishing, nature walk, .crafts, art and orienteering. There was also an optional activity of horseback riding for those students that wished to go. During lunch time, former student James Biehn entertained the students with live music at a picnic-style lunch. Here are some of the reflections from the students: My favorite thing was canoeing because it was fun and challenging. I was partnered with Jocelyn Perry. We listened to all the directions and tried not to tip it be- cause that would be a disaster! I heard there were water snakes in that pond too! I have only been canoeing a few times so I don't get to do it a lot. i love canoeing because I have to work hard and you get a 10t of experi- ence. Jocelyn and I stayed close to land so we didn't drift away. There was a bit of a breeze! -Sara Bennett The canoeing was very fun. It made me feel free. It meant so much to me because it was a very fun field trip and I've never canoed before. I liked the boat rock- ing and the water swirling. I really felt like tipping it but then I wouldn't be able to do the rest of the trip. That was the best experience of outdoors I've done in a long time. -Michael Legan My favorite activity at Leisure Day was...I really like the horseback riding, because you got to ride a really nice horse named Greeny. Also I got to lead all of the other horses. I had A LOT of FUN! Finally I ha d a lot of fun at Leisure Day. We got to do a lot of activities. . ,.. . -Megan Schultze -] IC : +:, " ll-il- My'favorite activity from Leisure day on September 24, 2010 was canoeing. I really enjoyed canoeing. That is the first time I have been canoeing. I am going to teach my family how to canoe. I actually love canoeing. That might become my new hobby. I think m.y family will love canoeing. That was my favorite activity from Lei- sure Day. "" ...................... -Learma Brockett " I am going to choose the canoeing. It was very fun. I like when we .had to paddle out and then try to maneu- ver our way around the shore. It was also fun when we had to turn around and head back to shore. -Dylan Lane I like when we we. nt on a hike then we had to use our 5 senses. I like how We had to find our way back! It was fun I would like to do it again. -Hannah Andre I liked canoeing because it took team work. You also had to get out of bad situations. You had to have some strength to paddle. It was hard to just keep paddling and not stopping. -Kyle McGuire I loved canoeing at Annett Nature Center. The feel- ing of being out on the water is like jumping on a tram- poline, it's like nothing else matters in life. Nothing, you leave all your problems on the shore, and just float. You stop trying to fight the current in life and just float. In life, choosing the right path is key, but on the water, it seems no matter how many wrong turns you made there -is always a detour there somewhere. -Noah Krichau On the craft time during Leisure Day, I chose to make the bracelet/necklace. I liked doing it because I love to create stuff. I also liked the process. My sister used to make bracelets/necklaces like that a lot when I was younger and I always wanted to learn. Now I can make her bracelets!! -Mya McAlpin When I was fishing I had some troubles putting on the hook and the worm. Once I had help getting it on, I was off to fish. My first time I reeled it in, I felt some- thing bite. So I reeled it in and there was a fish on the end! Mr. Heltman told me to go over where he was to show him how big it was. He told me nice job, then I got my pictures taken by Ms. Jass. Then, the school put my picture on the Leisure Day video. -Spencer Hutchinson Photos submitted.
