the Onekama fifth grade went to ride across Lake Michigan on the S.S.
Badger. When we got there the ship did not look very big but when we got
in the ship it seemed to be huge. Our guide took us to a room in the
back of the boat and told us were the rooms were and she told us the
rules of the boat. When she was done talking we got to go check out the
ship. We all were up on deck when the captain blew the horn to signal
that we were about to leave the dock. We all wanted to see the ship take
off. When the boat left the canal we went to the gift shop I bought a
cheese head. After that we went to the arcade most of the games were out
of order though. They were playing Hotel for Dogs in the theater. I
watched a little bit of that because I've seen that movie a lot. After
we got to Manitowoc, Wisconsin we went to the Maritime Museum. There we
toured a submarine and checked out their exhibits. It was awesome there
was a room that you could build your own boat and sail it through canals
and through a mini Sue Locks under bridges and down rivers. There was a
virtual fishing and we got to buy Torpedo Juice (Root Beer). That tasted
really good. After the museum we had to get back on the boat to go back
to Michigan. Once we got back we road back to school and that was the
end of the trip. I had a great time on the Badger I hope my family goes
on it to stay in Wisconsin. ~ Hunter E.
I went on the badger. We road the bus there and then they put the bus on
the boat. On the way to Wisconsin I watched hotel for dogs on the way
there and played in the arcade. Taya and I were partners on the badger.

the museum. We got a tour of a submarine. Then we went on the boat and
went back to Michigan. The badger was fun. ~Keegan
