Grade 6 went to “Tsutusji Eco Park” as a field trip.
Our students wrote a short essay about that. We would like to introduce some of them.
※Teachers usually correct grammar and the sentence structures. However, here, we would introduce the original essays written by students.
My grade 6th grade went to trip in Eco Park in Higashi. When we arrived at there everyone was surprised because the ground was big and there was a huge climbing wall and tall pole walk. At first, we made our teamwork strong by playing a game with rope and river crossing. We could do it so fast so our project adventure teacher was so surprised. After we made our teamwork, our adventure teacher taught us how to wear the thing that will support us. We made our teams and started climbing the climbing walls. I was scared so I couldn’t go to the top but, I tried until I reached my goal. Next we did pole walk. My feet were shaking because with my nervous but I tried very hard so I could go until the top and I could walk in the pole. I was very happy that I could go until end and after I go down, I thought I was great because said that you did a great job. We ate lunch after that. It was yummy because I ate after I challenged. Like in Eco Park in Higashi’s rule, I want to make people happy by saying good thing and I don’t want to say bad thing to other. I learn that if we challenge and say good thing, you can do it so I want to make my life good by doing this experience from today.
My legs were shaking my sight was turning around even more with 10 meter high log. I couldn’t move. We 6th graders were at Tsutsuji Eco Park Okinawa. This filed trip were kind of survival, called Project Adventure (PA). I was on a high log at PA center. It was 10 meters high, and I couldn’t recognize others with same clothes. Even more I was frightened, and my legs were shaking. My voice didn’t come out. I felt dizzy and my sight was fading white. I think everyone will feel this if they’re on a 10 m high log with only a thin, blue roop that you are worried if it splits. I was kind of forced to walk on this, and come back. So, I was angry too. And from that anger, I went on. Then, it wasn’t scary anymore, but felt that I was flying. From this, I learned that first step is the hardest to step out. I was encouraged by Ms. Jacinta before I go up. She told me, “You are already brave that you decided to go up. But, try as hard as you can. I know you’re frightened, but only the first step is scary. You can do it!” I was able to have courage from her words, and from this, I’m going to take many challenging first step, if I have chance. At PA center, I learned that “Life is about adventure.”
