Yesterday, students in Coach Stinson's honors World Geography class took a field trip to the Red River Valley Museum. The class had been studying geography in the U.S. and Canada, so this was a perfect time to go explore the museum and learn about the early settlers in this area, animals of the region (and world) and learn about the history of the Waggoner Ranch. After the field trip, students wrote about their biggest takeaways from the field trip and things they'd like to learn more about.
