Stoney Creek Place-Based Learning – Connecting with the environment

Sign Making Project

| 1 Comment

Intermediate students have had a chance to learn some new skills while making signs for the local forest. In collaboration with the Stoney Creek Environment Committee and Stream of Dreams Mural Society, the students are providing a great service to the community. The signs will identify new plants  along the forest trail that require protection. Stay tuned for the final products.

The grade 6 & 7 students have been learning about the medicinal properties of cedar tea. It is very high in vitamin C, and it can also soothe a sore throat. We discuss the importance of having guidance with taking medicine, and we only taste small amounts. Students sampled the fragrant beverage in simple origami paper cup that they crafted themselves.

Several classes of primary students created paint brushes by connecting a clipping of a cedar bough to a chop stick with craft wire. Then they used this tool to paint with. Students are learning about technology — tools that make our lives easier.
