Union Pacific's “Living Legend” No. 844 steam locomotive will travel more than 1,200 miles one-way to celebrate the Oct. 22 opening of Big River Crossing in Memphis, Tennessee. The trek is the first multi-state venture since the locomotive's three-year restoration.

No. 844 traversed Union Pacific's main line through Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee beginning Oct. 13. Brief stops were scheduled throughout the 19-day round trip journey.

The “Living Legend” made a 15-minute stop at the Washington train depot on Front Street on Tuesday morning, Oct. 18.

A large crowd of spectators was on hand to see the steam locomotive.

The School District of Washington’s third grade challenge students, along with their facilitators, Michelle Bobo and Jana Monzyk, have been involved in the Project Lead The Way curriculum.  

In studying the variation of traits that offspring may express, the students have learned many new vocabulary words.They have worked in groups to plant seeds and then observe the different characteristics of those plants. The dominant and recessive genes that are inherited are predicted by the student by implementing the use of the Punnett Square.

Krista Williams, Washington High School biology teacher, invited the third grade challenge class to the high school’s Project Lead The Way Introduction to Biomedical Science fifth hour class.  

The high school students were assigned an activity involving DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) extraction from a plant (strawberries).  

They were partnered with each of the third grade students to lead them in a guided experiment through the process of extracting DNA.  

The high school students were expected to explain the process and answer questions from the third graders. The third graders learned new science terms, were able to have a hands-on science experience and work with the very patient high school students.  

This activity/project/problem-based learning approach allowed the PLTW third grade challenge students and PLTW Introduction to Biomedical Science high school students to work collaboratively.  

In this activity, it was observed that all students were able to apply what they know, employ critical thinking and lead their own learning.

Photos of the students working together are below.
