Grade 7 Rivers Excursion

Students posing with the "OnlyLyon" sign in the Confluence area of Lyon

Grade 7 went on a trip to the Confluence last Tuesday as part of their Rivers and Ancient Civilizations Project. They were investigating the Rhône and the Saône in a self-directed research task, so we took a trip to see the two rivers in person.

Mr Dunn came to give a talk on the canalization, or taming, of the Rhône – a project that was undertaken to help stop the floods and damages caused in the past. The most amazing fact is that the Rhône is about 5,000,000 years old!
