Ridley College Gr. 9’s Explore Niagara’s Geographic Splendor

Yesterday the Grade 9 Geography students participated in the ‘Niagara Region Field Day’.

Highlights of our trip included: soaring 175 feet above Niagara Falls aboard the Niagara Skywheel; descending 200 feet to get a close-up view of the Whirlpool Rapids; a visit to the St. Catharines Museum to view a lake freighter descending through Lock 3 and to learn more about the history of the Welland Canal; and a tour of the Niagara College Teaching Winery.
