For our fourth (and what turned out to be our final in-person time together) session, the primary teachers study group met at Anderson Elementary.
We began our time together by investigating the materials included in the Bog Ecology Kit, available through our district resource centre (DRC).
Inspired by some cards in the kit, the group decided it wanted to create plant cards on a ring that teachers could take outside with their students. Each teacher in the group will take on a local plant to photograph and research with their students.
The teachers from Anderson took us out to visit their outdoor learning area and garden and then we walked over to Garden City Park, where we used Anne-Marie Fenn’s nature finding list to observe the area.
Thank you to the Anderson teachers for hosting us!
