Locks are cool! Our little league team has spent a good amount of time discussing canal locks during homework time over the past few months. So we were pretty excited to see a real one in action. During our team trip to Ontario, we stopped by the St. Catherine’s Museum and Welland Canal Center. Here’s a quick account from Lewis, a teen on our team.
We went to the Welland Canal.
“We saw the locks in action.” -Theo, 14
We went to the museum.
“I saw some of the classic weapons of World War I.” -Adonis, 12
Then we saw a boat and the water drained.
“It takes 45 minutes to move up and down and its really amazing to see it up close.” -Tre, 14
