Classroom Learning in Action
Ms. Bourdon/Ms. Brant's (Grade 2/3)
Division 5 (grade 2/3) has been participating in weekly learning sessions with Tiffany, our guest outdoor educator. Students have been learning about bird songs, how and what birds eat and how to recognize various plants and animals that live in our area and outdoor classroom. Students have enjoyed playing games, exploring stations and using tools such as binoculars and magnifying glasses to learn more about nature in our own backyard.
