Buffalo Field Trip

 by Thomas

 

One beautiful day we went to downtown Buffalo.  First, we went to Mr. Matt Sperber’s guitar concert at St. Paul’s Cathedral.  Second, we went to the harbor at Canalside.

At Mr. Matt’s concert, we arrived with two minutes to spare.  When Mr. Matt was playing, it was nice and calm music.  He played about four or five songs.

At Canalside we saw Navy ships.  At 2:30 pm, a ship called the Niagara from the War of 1812 came to the harbor.  The boat was more than 200 years old!  We also saw a cannon from the War of 1812.  We saw the sailors demonstrate how they load the cannon.  They had a sound system.  They also had a sound effect that sounded like the cannon shot, but it didn’t really shoot.

 A little while after that we went home.

  1. Thomas, I like the story about your fieldtrip a whole lot. I am glad you are learning some history about our country. That was a very neat ship on the picture.
