"When we went to see the new Cranbrook sign at Elizabeth Lake, the sign was pretty cool. It was pretty cool to see the mayor because I never saw the mayor before."

"My favourite part about my visit to Elizabeth Lake was catching shells and shrimp."

"I think leeches are interesting! But I don't want to touch one. Too bad I didn't catch one."

"We were walking across a bridge and we saw a duck in a slimy, dried up creek."

"My field trip to Elizabeth Lake was fabulous. My favourite part was smelling the (trunk of the) ponderosa (pine). It smells like vanilla."

"I remember when we stopped and Mr. Wilson showed us how to tell where the sun is without looking. You can tell by looking at your shadow."

Welcome back Mr. Wilson and a very warm welcome to your new class as well. I am so glad that you had nice weather to start the year out with a trip to the lake and were able to meet Mayor Stetski at the grand opening of the new sign.

I hadn't realized how big the sign is...wow !

As always I'm looking forward to your next adventure.

After we explored our school native garden we wrote about our favourite plant.

The potentilla is a pretty tall bush that has yellow flowers on it.

The rabbit brush is big and soft and it has yellow petals. It is kind of like a broom because the top of it is just like the top of a broom.

I saw yarrow. It helps the Earth. It can stop toothaches and nose bleeds. It comes off a white plant.

I loved the tall juniper because it is the tallest plant in the garden.

I'm a wild rose. People make jam from my rosehips. It's the most magnificent jam ever!

I like the wolf willow because it has very, very soft leaves. The stem is skinny.

Hi! I'm a trembling aspen. Sometimes I think I am a birch tree but I am not ...

We walked to Kinsmen Park where we worked with the Grade 12 Geography Outdoor Education Class. They taught us about Joseph Creek through a variety of activities.

One of the games we played was about survival and involved bears and salmon.

We also learned what it would feel like to fetch our own water, which is what many women and children in poor African countries have to do every day. If we had to do that every day, we think we would all use water differently.

We enjoyed sharing what we had learned with our big buddies.
