Learning about the locks

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 by DANA GRUBB in School

Fourth grade students throughout the Bethlehem Area School District got some firsthand canal experience using the book “Tales of the Towpath,” which was written by canal education manager Dennis Scholl, for the curriculum.

Each class also visited the Freemansburg Canal Education Center on a class field trip. The story is told through the eyes of a 10-year-old and depicts life along the canal during the 18th Century.
