Spring Update

Hi All,

We have been busy learning about our local environment – McClughan Park – as well as raising our salmon.  We have started a website a while ago called:

https://teachers.sd35.bc.ca/heartofourtrails/

We will be posting information about our studies and what we are learning in our classroom on this website.  This website you are on right now, will be primarily for educational resources to access – such as Math and Language Arts.  Please come see our latest post HERE and photos of our Salmon Dissection and our ideas on how to improve the Yorkson Creek bridge (please scroll down to the bottom of the page).  To just look at our Heart of Our Trails website please access the landing page  HERE.

Thanks for coming to our resources website and also our environmental education website.  Wow!  Two websites for one class!

We also watched animals in different biomes through this website, which can also be found under our Science STEM page.  Feel free to explore these awesome places around the world anytime you want!
