The Project World Class went on a field
trip to Pawtucaway State Park, to do some snow showing. While on their
hike they came upon a Beaver Pond and they all sat down by it and wrote
their thoughts down in note books. The rest of this page will show you
what they had to say.
warmth sunshine crisp stillness warm sun rays glistening
add mix of winter and summer
fluffs of white clouds
cool breeze whips along the tops of dead grass
body is cooling down
quiet small stream
warming sun on my face
pleasant earth tone colors
snow slowly melts in hand
butt hurts -- rock is hard
glorious peaceful bright
quiet vibrant wet extraordinary dangerous
awe inviting death
nice almost like a spring day
hard packed snow
quiet life freedom
relaxing warmth open
Not a NH calendar picture
1,000s of trees sway and make noises
tiny grassy knolls look like muppets with grass
hair. I expect them to jump up and
Evergreens with needles a sickly shade of yellow-green.
Is that their winter wear or
an indication of some earthly disease?
the loud quietness
a calm slowly moving stream
wishing I could come out here every day
the cycles of the wind
my notebook flapping in the wind
quality not quantity
I don't feel like sharing these with everyone,
not all of them anyway
my handwriting is getting worse as I go along
solitude with company
breezy colorful contrasts
birds calling blending
beautiful peaceful calm
sparkling strength unique
unknown no interruptions
wet peaceful clean
calm reedy dripping
untainted thought provoking
musical radiant sublime
a small spider crawling on a rock makes me wonder
if someone is watching us?
With every breeze I'm taken somewhere and returned
before it ends.
Can all of us come here and say our soul is at
peace? death and birth
Chinese art of Shi
unseen freedom will
glimmer flight solace
The noisy silence of nature.
Salamanders experience a whole different world.
The power of students writing around a Beaver
There's a school here. It's a synthesis of wind,
snow, sun, and open mind.
The natural geometry of a stream slowing through
This does indeed beat lunch duty. How right it
is out here. How
wrong we do it back there. Here there are no walls,
bells, schedules. Here there is
choice, freedom, a word teacher, a world to learn.
