Nature Kids Club learned where their food was coming from and how it was impacting the environment. Students in room 3 learned that if they took the seeds from tomatoes, peppers and cucumber, they could grow their own garden of those foods. They were amazed.
The Nature Kids Club have written Letters to the Mayor of Calgary giving him some of our suggestions and asking him what can be done to help our environment.
The Nature Kids Club share with their classmates it is never a good idea to waste paper! We are losing too many trees because people are being careless. Please be kind!
One student chose to focus on the bat during a structured mammal inquiry. He taught the class that bats "see with their ears," and we consolidated learning about echolocation and a little bit about predator/prey relationships by playing the game Bat & Moth outside.
We developed a school wide Garden. Our school community came to help build the garden boxes and fill the boxes with dirt. Each classroom has a garden box as well as there are 10 boxes available for the community to grow food.
