Every day 2, for the entire school year, grade 3 classes go outside for a minimum of one hour in the afternoon for intentional outdoor education combining social studies, science, mathematics, arts, and social skills.
Our grade 3/4 class is spending Wednesdays, full days, outside at Fort Whyte Alive Forest School.
Canada’s Water Week March 22nd and the Nature Kids Club leaned about the importance of clean water. Some students didn’t realize that some people in the world that don’t have clean water. Some have to travel long distances for water. Some of those people live in Canada.
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 collects used or dead batteries (9V, AAA, B, AA, D, C and cell batteries) to recycle for the metal. The acid in the batteries is also drained and therefore bypassing the landfill and not leaching into our water systems.
