We enjoyed listening to Joe Pierre telling the Ktunaxa Creation Legend.
He is such a good storyteller and he kept us entertained right to the end.

A walk to Elizabeth Lake
On a foggy afternoon
After a snowfall
Was full of fun.

After hearing the story of Winston of Churchill
About a polar bear from Churchill, Manitoba,
Who leads the polar bears into action
With a protest march
To let humans know
That polar bears think
Ice is Nice,
And it's time for humans to change their ways,
We wanted to make a play about the story.
So with help from Ms. Savage and Mr. Wilson,
We divided the class into two,
And made up two plays.
We performed our plays today
Right after we finished our Christmas Concert.
Let's hope the audience got our message!

A squirrel spotted
On a snowy afternoon walk to Elizabeth Lake
On the last school day of 2015

Great excitement as a snow spider is detected
On our walk around Wilson Island
Click on image to download
This is followed by a race across the ice,
And snow angels on Snow Angel Bay.
Then it's time to head back to school
For some well deserved hot chocolate.

We learned about Wangari Maathai,
And how she founded the Green Belt Movement
Helping to plant 30 million trees
In her native Kenya over 30 years.

We also heard how Wangari
Learned about a Japanese word Mottainai,
Which means taking care of the Earth,
Only using what we have to,
And trying to avoid waste.
Wangari said that it reminded her
Of the 3Rs and the fourth R.
We made a list of all the possibilities
We could think of for the fourth R.

Later we learned more about Mottainai
From our Japanese teacher,
Who explained different things we can do
To help Mother Earth.

This week we learned that Cranbrook is world-famous for its fossil bed of trilobites.
We're looking forward to a field trip in the spring when we will get a chance to find our own!
