It has been nice to finally start settling back into our classroom routines after the long winter break and series of snow days.
Thank you to the volunteers who drove and chaperoned our trip to the Water Resource center in Vancouver. Students learned about water ecology and plants, while visiting the interactive exhibits in the Museum!
I feel that one of the advantages of working at a constructivist school is having the opportunity to connect children to information and materials through hands on exploration. These real life applications have been shown to strengthen a child's understanding of a concept or idea. It is also a way for children to meet experts in the field and learn from other teachers.
With this being said the 2/3 will be visiting Kelly Point Park on Thursday Feb. 16th for a naturalist program led by the Columbia Slough organization that will focus on the watershed. This trip will supplement the learning that we've been doing around weather and the water cycle. We will be leaving Trillium at 11:30 and returning by 2:30.
Drivers will be needed so please sign up using the link below if you would like to come.
