Cottage Grove students go angling for fun
It's traditional for Pine Hill Elementary School students to spend one of the last days of the school year at nearby Hamlet Park in Cottage Grove.
Last month, fourth-graders were on a mission to go fishing.
But it wasn't an ordinary trek to a pond to cast a line and reel in fish. They didn't have fishing rods, hooks or bait.
The project started, according to teacher Sue Elchert, after the students read "My Side of the Mountain" by Jean Craighead George.
