Last week we enjoyed roasting marshmallows and apples over the fire. We also had a visit from Mr. Bramhall’s Gr. 6-7 class. They helped us make sand volcanoes. A good time was had by everyone and students learned through all their senses what happens to solids and liquids when there is a chemical or physical change. (For example, marshmallows in apples turn into caramel syrup when heated – yum!) We helped clean up from the winter wind storm by gathering fallen branches. It feels good to do purposeful physical work!
