Ahoy, matey! Class B had the opportunity to connect via Zoom with the crew of the Apollonia. This boat is a carbon neutral steel hulled schooner traveling down the Hudson River towards NYC this past weekend, with a delivery of pumpkins in its cargo. The class met the crew, took a tour of the boat, and asked questions as children’s curiosity was piqued. The crew shared new boat terminology with the class, explaining the meaning of captain, first mate, anchor, helm, galley, and bow. This meeting led to many questions:
How do you get the anchor out of the water? Will it be wet?
How is the mud and sand strong enough to hold the anchor in place?
How does the anchor keep such a heavy boat still?
How do you climb into the galley?
Where do you sleep? Where is the bathroom?
What does a captain do?
Do you have eggs in the kitchen?
Can you juggle the pumpkins?
Why are the pumpkins covered in blankets?
Is the name of the boat written on the boat?
Is there a bumper on the front?
What do you use rope for?
Once docked in the seaport, several children went to meet the crew over the weekend, seeing the schooner in person, and even taking home a pumpkin from its cargo. Class B is excited to see where this emerging nautical interest leads!
It has been so exciting to work with everyone in our Art Studio here at Hudson!
