It was an unusually warm day as the class started. Mr. Nick was there instead of Mr. Rhys, so it was slightly different. The day started with D. teaching us how to play starfish. After, we began collecting logs for our spatulas from the magical forest. Some were pink while others purple on the inside. This would make for beautiful spatulas!
Then, we headed into the forest, led by H. We crossed the creek and headed to the mystical shelter. Then, we ate and were told a frightening story by K. After eating, little did everyone knows that our appetites would be ruined, K. talked about a parasite, Cryptosporidium.
People can become infected with this parasite after drinking contaminated water or getting it in your mouth. This was especially important on a hot day. After learning about the parasite, we moved on to a more pleasant activity. Everyone began working on their spatulas. They came out beautiful.
A while later we planned some of the activities for field day. People were separated into groups and planned what they would say and what they would do. Then, we headed to the creek. Some of us waded in the water and continued building the rock bridge. The water was getting deeper in one part and spilling into the other. Much work had to be done! Unfortunately, it was time to head out, so we headed to the parking lot. Goodbyes were said as each of us drifted farther from the forest.
