Today we had a virtual field trip to the Legislature. We explored the Parliament Buildings and learned about their design, history and use. We learned about important symbols of the Legislative Assembly and discussed significant historical, political and social events in B.C. and how they relate to the Legislative Assembly.
We learned that the Legislative Assembly is made up of many people and learned more about the work they do and the roles they play. We also learned more about how a bill becomes law.
For homework students are encouraged to complete the participant survey below:
On Wednesday we had a virtual field trip on zero waste and circular economies. Students learned about the 3Rs and examined why it is so important to reduce and re-use our resources. They explored the “how to” for recycling and composting and discovered solutions for sustainable waste management and how to remake materials and products to be used again and again, mimicking natural cycles in nature.
Students are encouraged to take a waste audit for homework for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate of our choice or a pizza party for our class. To complete the audit click on the link to take the fun WASTE AUDIT or follow the steps below:
