On Tuesday, September 29th the Grade 6 students at CMS ventured out to Tourond Creek Discovery Centre for some outdoor learning. The students rotated around various stations at the centre, including critter dipping, constructing a pathway, making art from nature, a scavenger hunt, and several other activities.
It was nice getting out of the classroom and out of the city to explore what our science curriculum sets out for grade 6 students to learn, the Diversity of Living things. The students saw and interacted with slugs, bugs, and a variety of different plants and animals. A couple caterpillars even made there way back to the school in the afternoon.
As a teacher, I find learning trips to be just that, a place to extend the learning that is happening in the classroom, and maybe have a little extra fun in the process! Here are a couple pictures that were taken during the day.
