Last week, students were fascinated by finding and following tracks in the snow! We made treats to help the birds get through the cold snap as part of learning about animal adaptations to winter.


The week ahead: January 29-Feb. 2

We’ll be making a mini-migration across the river and building dens for toy animals as we continue learning about animal survival strategies in winter. Groundhog Day provides a fun way to practice math! We’ll graph our predictions, and discuss the coming of spring using probability vocabulary. This week we also host visits from the Fraser River Discovery Centre and Kylie Knowlson, a local teacher and author of the book “Keith Takes A Snow Day”. Book link
