Canoeing is a water-based activity that involves paddling a canoe. The Canoeist is sat or kneels in the canoe and has a paddle (a long pole with blades on each end) the canoei…st then propels himself through the water by paddling or canoeing. Canoeing is for recreation, sport and a form of transport in particular where river systems are navigable by larger boats or water is choppy and broken up with rocks also known as white water canoeing or white-water kayaking. Canoes are also widely used on river systems that cannot be un navigable their entire course known as portage where the light weight of a canoe makes it possible to carry over land to the next body of water.
The oldest canoes that we have discovered date back to 8000 BCE, but the technology was probably invented even earlier than that. Since this predates writing and canoes te…nd not to survive well since wood rots over time, older canoes may have existed, but remain unknown.
Canoes can be made out of a variety of materials. In pre-historic times, canoes were made either from large logs that had been hollowed out, or from tree branches, pine pitch… and birchbark. The former were heavy, but strong, and took considerable time to create. The latter were lightweight and could be made quickly out of natural materials that were found in abundance, but needed frequent repairs. Today, the most common canoes are made with fibreglass or similar manufactured substances. Canvas-covered wood frames, wood strips coated with fibreglas, and aluminum are also common methods and materials used in manufacturing canoes.

Bow is the term used for the front of the boat, Stern is the term for the back.
The stern is the back of a canoe - or any boat (the front is the "bow"). If you aren't certain which is supposed to be the front or back of your canoe look at the seats. One o…f the seats will be close to the point of its end, and one will be further away from the point. The one closer is the back of the boat (the bow seat is further away so the paddler has room for their legs)
