Ski Trip by Nicholas
January 17, the fifth grade went on a field trip to Hidden Valley to
ski. For the people that have never skied before, it was a challenge.
But for the kids who had skied before, it was a breeze. Before we could
get any of our gear we had to watch a safety video so we didn’t hurt
ourselves while we were skiing. The kids that had gone skiing before got poles
and got the opportunity to ride the chair lift. Everyone had to do ski
school before they could go on a slope. The first station was getting
your skis on. The second station was learning how to fall. The third
station was learning how to walk facing forward. The fourth station was
learning how to walk sideways. The fifth station was learning how to
stop and start. The sixth station was applying the start stop skill on a
slope. Once this was done 3 times you were aloud to go to the last
station. The seventh, and last, station was being able to swivel between
cones that were about 7 feet apart down a steep slope. Now Mrs. Barnes
class wants to go again.
