Our trip to Camp Impeesa was a big part of this week, and the activities we did Thursday in the classroom pale in comparison. Camp was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed the extended opportunity to get to know your child better. The students participated in many activities. They made bear dens and microparks, shot arrows, lost their sense of sight and followed a map in an orienteering activity. They explored wetlands and participated in the animal game. They may have saw bats and owl pellets or come across an old plane. There were many highlights, and by now you may have heard about Oatmeal’s poor acting skills or Yeti’s ability to teach us a new song. Please check the website for photos of our adventures.
Coming up next week in Humanities we will enjoy a trip to Fort Calgary. Students will begin researching and event, person or group they feel impacted Canadian identity. In math they will be discussing the deca tree problem and will be completing a check-in mid-next week. This check-in will be assessing students understanding of place value and number forms. I have attached some additional practice if your child would like to do some extra preparation. In science we will be completing our adaptations research.
