Today we planned to read down to the Potomac Waterfront to feed different ducks. We were also hoping to collect some duck feathers that we could examine under the digital microscope. We took our windy walk down to the waterfront. Once we were near the river, we saw so many seagulls! Unfortunately upon arriving at the waterfront there was one problem..... no ducks! We decided to head back to the canal. We went to a different spot along the canal this time, and the ducks seemed a little scared of us. They only came up to eat our treats when we backed away from the canal. Max suggested, "Maybe we need to introduce ourselves." We did that and it seemed to work. The ducks were more willing to approach the snacks we had tossed for them.
Our walk today also illustrated that it isn't just the destination, it's the journey. Children responded to many elements in the environment: the brick columns, tree roots, cement barricades, and structures along the river. Enjoy these images and have a great weekend!
