Mr Wilson, we are looking forward to all your exciting classroom adventures this year. Hopefully our forest fires are extinguished very soon so your classes can enjoy the outdoors once again.

Glad to be back for another exciting school year.
Today Mr. W. joined Mrs. Duchscherer's class
For a walk to Kinsmen Park,
Where we explored along Joseph Creek.

We learned that the area with vegetation beside the creek
Is called the RIPARIAN ZONE.
It provides SHADE, SHELTER and FOOD for animals
Including the fish and bugs that live in the creek.
We also learned that the creek does not flow in a straight line.
......Instead
..........It
........MEANDERS
.....Going
............This
.................Way
..........And
.................That
............As
.........It
.................Looks
............For
....................The
.........Easiest
.....................Path.

We got a chance to make our own creeks.
We split into two teams,
Each of us with a carton of water.
One after another we emptied our water,
Which began to flow downhill
Like a real creek.

After a short time our creeks flowed together
And became a bigger, wider creek
Just like real creeks and rivers.

We also had a Canoe Race
Using popsicle sticks for canoes.
We learned that the fastest part of the creek
Is the CURRENT.
Some of our canoes got stuck in a back eddy
Or caught in rocks,
While others moved quickly
Carried along by the strong current.

The walk back along the trail
Reminded us that the riparian zone
Provides shade, shelter and food,
As we stayed cool,
While watching some crows eating the fruit on the bushes.

During our walk back to school
We had to walk up a hill,
But when we first walked to the creek,
We walked downhill to get there.
Just like WATER FLOWS DOWNHILL,
We went downhill to get to the creek.
