Canoeing – July 15

On July 15th I went to canoeing with our Summer Explorer Program. First, I went to take a bus with my classmates and teacher. Afterwards, I went canoeing on river. Finally, I took photos with my classmates. As you can see, I had a very good time with my classmates and teachers.

I like boating very much because we learned teamwork while rowing. Everybody pulled together. You can also see the water scenery of Canada. I also saw Canada geese; they are very cute and lovely. The captain introduced us to the history of this while rowing.

Mini Putting – July 15

Today, we went to play golf (mini putt). The place was a little small and it was in a building. The place was a little dark but we could still see well. I learned how to play golf last Saturday so I thought I could play it well. But when I had a try, I found I can’t. I practiced for 10 minutes. Then I could play better than before. But later we had no time so we had to go back. I believe I can play well next time. 
Then we went to play arcade games and we got many prizes! We were very happy!

Byward Market – July 15

I went to the Byward Market. It was my first time to go to another country’s market, so I was very nervous. When I saw the big red letters spelling out ‘OTTAWA’, I was so excited. There were a lot of stores. My friends and I did a scavenger hunt. We had to search for the answers on the sheet. It was hard to do. Looking around, I saw a lot of maple syrup stands. Before going to the market, my classmates told me ‘You must buy the maple syrup’, but I didn’t bring my money, so I couldn’t buy any. There was an ice cream store with a lot of ice cream. It had 24 flavors. I wish we had more time.



I went to the Byward Market today. I had a hard time walking with my friends on a hot day with homework given by teachers, but it was so nice to be able to look around. I think many things were good to see in the Byward Market.


Today, I went to the Byward Market. I saw the Millennium Fountain, and I took a picture with the “Ottawa” sign. I went to the souvenir shops but I came out of the shops because the shop was very, very hot. And I observed the maple syrup with my friends. Suddenly the owner served maple syrup candies to us. We said “thank you.”
Actually, we couldn’t do many things because of the hot weather. So we said, “sorry…teacher.”


Hockey – July 15

That  kind of sport consist in put a ball in a hockey net; that would be a point. Also that sport it’s divided in 2 teams and the team with more points it’s the winner. Yesterday, we played hockey but our team was the loser; however, that was so fun because some of us didn’t know how to play that sport.


Hockey – July 15

Today we played hockey which is a very popular sport in Canada. We played hockey in the school’s gym. Actually, we were supposed to go to the space simulator activity, but sadly, it was cancelled. In the first round, I just watched my friends while they were doing exercises and listening to the rules and tactics of playing hockey. I realized that hockey is risky even for the audience. We played with a plastic ball, but when someone hits it with some force behind it, it will turn into an even heavier ball. After the game, I searched something about this issue on the net. In real hockey games, they put a net in front of the audience.
