Boats, dams, bridges, flood walls, historical sties, historical stories and more made for fascinating science and history lessons!
As a nature study, a boat tour is a great way to observe river life from a new perspective. Trees, plants, rocks, landforms, erosion, decomposition, evidence of flood, water animals, animals that live near water, predator/prey relationships and many more opportunities presented themselves just during this hour-long trip.
Studying rivers or creeks from the banks is great fun, but if you ever have a chance to take a boat study – go for it! It’s great fun!
I have to remember this for next year! Thanks for sharing about it!
Looks like a great learning opportunity, Cindy! Do you have a link for more info. for next year? I used to teach at a school, in Frankfort, right on the Kentucky River,so it’s near my old “stomping ground.” I feel much more blessed, though, and in my God given role to be my husband’s helpmeet, and home educating my little blessings!
I think you can call the Capital City Museum for tour info. http://www.capitalcitymuseum.com/ 🙂
