A Salmon Update

Our salmon have changed so much since they arrived at our school in early January.  They are just about fry and soon we will be in charge of feeding them. Take a look at them now.

Canadian Explorer, Jill Heinreth. Underwater Cave Diver

This week we were super lucky to be invited to Green Timber's Elementary School to meet Canadian Explorer, Jill Heinreth.




Jill shared many stories with us of the places she has been to and some of the cool technology she has used to capture images.  Here are some images of our adventure.

Walking to Green Timbers



Learning about virtual reality tools she can uses. 

She answered many questions.

Daffodil Update

In the fall we took some time to plant some daffodil bulbs.  Look what we saw the other day.

The Snow Clothing Challenge 2017

A few weeks ago, when our snow was all gone, Mrs. Cassidy's class in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan invited classes around the world to take part in their snow clothing challenge.  The challenge is to see how quickly your class can put on their winter clothing.  When the challenge came out we had green grass everywhere so it wasn't something we could take part in.  However, as you know we now have more snow than ever!  So today, before lunch we took the challenge.

If you are curious to see how Mrs. Cassidy's class did check out their blog post by clicking here.

Here's our attempt at the challenge. While we did take a little longer than they did, we put our shoes  and boots on too. We are proud of our efforts!


Thanks for the challenge Mrs. Cassidy's class!

Winter Forest Lab Field Trip, Surrey Nature Centre

On Wednesday we were fortunate to have a wonderful field trip at the Surrey Nature Centre.  While there we played a game that showed the different between animals that hibernate, migrate, and just keep moving during winter.  We then spent some time collecting specimens in the forest which we later look at under a microscope.  While in the lab, complete with lab coats and everything, we did four different experiments,  Here are a few photos.


Meeting Chantell and learning about our outdoor game.

Heading into the lab to be scientists.

Check out these photos of our discoveries while in the lab. We are very thankful for our parent volunteers who not only brought us there, but worked closely with us too.
