Our trip to the Ice Age Trail was a great adventure! We started the morning with a hike along the Ice Age Trail while we learned about how the glaciers formed hummocks (hills or high pieces of land) and kettles (low areas of land). Students were able to knock our leader, Rod, off as King of the Rock by answering questions about glaciers. After a break for lunch, we headed inside to hold the snake and learn about Voyagers. Again, Rod taught us what it was like to be a voyager and how strong these men were. He taught us different games the voyagers liked to play in their free time, including Voyager Arm Wrestling, Voyager Tug of War (sometimes called Cat and Mouse), and how to throw a tomahawk. After we learned how to do all of these things, we went outside and actually played the games and threw the tomahawk. We were also able to experience what it was like to be a part of the logging industry by working like a lumberjack to saw off a piece of a log. The last part of our trip had us heading inside to the Nature Center to explore the exhibits. We worked in groups to learn more about plants, animals, and the land during the Ice Age. Overall we had a fabulous time learning out in nature!
