The grade 4/5 class has created a school garden in the back of the school. The red soil found in this area of Korea is very good for gardening and growing vegetables. Our class has planted pumpkins, corn, carrots, and some sunflowers!
In September our grade 4/5 class adopted a Map Turtle hatchling, who was only a couple weeks old. A'nowara, our baby turtles name, was the size of a dollar when we first got him, but he has now grown to be the size of a human hand!
To finish learning about the weather, we created our own weather station. We made our station out of arts and craft supplies including cups, wooden dowels, aluminum foil, and hammers and nails.
Three classes of students participated in the "Daffodil is a Promise", BC Min of Agriculture program. Each student helped to plant one or more daffodils around the school and in the courtyard. We learned about the daffodil life cycle and cut open a bulb to look inside.
Our class raises Mason Bees to help with early Spring pollination. In the Fall, we open our Mason Bee "paper straws" to remove and clean the cocoons. They are put in a fridge for the winter, in a special "humidity container".
