Walking Field Trip Downtown

4/29/13: We spent almost the entire day exploring downtown. In the fall, we went on a walking field trip to the NW area of downtown where we spent time along the waterfront and in Chinatown. Today we focused on the SW area of downtown and explored the transit malls, ‘big pink,’ Portlandia, Pioneer Courthouse and the Square.

Each pair of students brought along a digital camera that we checked out of the library. In the morning, we discussed how to use the cameras:

Then we took a Trimet bus to downtown and went walking. All the photographs that the students took will be reviewed and uploaded tomorrow, and many will be included in our final guidebook. Here are some photos from our trip:
