Mrs. Grady's Gr. 3/4 class visited Elizabeth Lake with Mr. W.
They were surprised at the damage that water has caused
By this storm drain.

Mrs. Duchscherer's class went to Elizabeth Lake with Mr. W.
Following much the same route as Mrs. Grady's class.
But ants on the trail caused quite a stir,
When several students discovered they had ants on them
After we stopped to check out a ponderosa pine.
As a result some students were on the look out
For ants any time we stopped.

More ants were spotted on the trail and on nearby plants,
And someone discovered a centipede crawling across the path.

Then several cedar waxwings landed on shrubs by the lakeshore.

Someone was able to identify this lichen
As Witch's Hair or Old Man's Beard.

Fungus on a dead tree
Helps it to decompose.
If you look closely at this picture,
Can you see something interesting
Crawling across the fungus?

One observant student found this real-life drama.
Can you guess what will eventually happen??

Elizabeth Lake can be full of surprises,
When you take the time to look around,
And make good use of your senses!!!!!

What did Mr. W. see at Elizabeth Lake recently?

This four-legged, furry creature
With the long, skinny tail,
Carrying a cattail back to its lodge.

A tree swallow leaving its nest
To catch insects for its chicks.

These reptiles sunning themselves
On a partly submerged rock.
