Before the break, both 7th grade classes took a trip to Howland’s Landing in Catalina Island. This trip was filled with educational programs, hikes, snorkeling, and kayaking. While we were there, we had some free time where we could explore the beach, the Gaga Ball court, relax in the cabins, and enjoy nature. The first day, depending on the group that you were in, we went kayaking and snorkeling. Before snorkeling, we reviewed some of the ocean life that was able to be seen like the Garibaldi, which is California’s state fish, sea urchins, sheepshead fish, and more. The second day we worked in the garden and learned about compost. We saw various types of plants, some of which were native only to Catalina. We learned about reusing materials and being aware of the impact we have on the environment. We ended the day with watching a slideshow about the night sky and constellations. Our last morning there, we went on an ecology hike which consisted of playing games and writing a postcard to home about our experience. The bus arrived back at the school around 3:20, concluding an exciting and eye-opening trip.
