Second Grade students at the Rock Island Academy took a Field Trip on the passenger paddlewheel boat the Celebration Bell on Wednesday, April 25!
The students learned about "All Things Mississippi" including an exclusive tour of the Celebration Belle to learn about how it works. The pilot let the students in the command post where he talked about how to navigate the river and keep the vessel running smooth during a river cruise.
The students also had a close-up view of the construction of the new I-74 bridge!
All aboard the Celebration Belle!
Great view from the stern!
