Nature Walk

Nature Walk

Students had a nice afternoon exploring “Sunset Forest” just off the trail. We examined plants/soils as well as rocks/minerals. Our field studies revealed a wealth of information and weather wise we couldn’t have asked for a better fall day!









Thank you to our parent volunteers Mrs. Carline and Mrs. Emo.

On Thursday 3/4L went on our nature walk to sunset forest. The grade 3’s were discovering plants and soils, and the grade 4’s were discovering rocks and minerals. We found some really cool interesting stuff! We found a bushel of poison berries on a big bush by the trees. We also found clay, minerals and Maya found a rock with a carving of a flower in it! Lauren and Sienna found a GIANT tree root with lots of roots on top that haven’t caved in on the animal home! Callum found erosion at the bottom of a river. Erosion is where rocks crack from the waters current. Some day you should go to sunset forest too!
