The Grade 3s enjoyed a fabulous field trip to Crawford Lake on Friday. Thankfully the rain held off and we had a great time exploring a Wendat village and the surrounding environment. This hands-on field trip supported the Social Studies curriculum so well. Ask your child questions like: What are 3 ways First Nations used moss? What trees were helpful in providing food, shelter and medicine? What kind of games did First Nations children play? How did they settle disputes with other villages? How did scientist know that people lived at this location (hint: the shape of lake)?
