Forces and Motion

Part of our redesigned curriculum has included learning about forces and motion in Kindergarten. Thomas’ dad is a Physics teacher, so we took a field trip to Mr. Campbell’s Physics 12 class. The Grade 12 students were our Big Buddies for the afternoon and taught us all about different kinds of forces and motion. We had fun and we learned so much! Thank you, Mr. Campbell for organizing all these amazing activities for us!

Metamorphosis

This album contains 55 items.

Over the past three weeks the KinderPals have been learning about the process of metamorphosis. We had a set of caterpillars delivered to our class on May 6, we watched the caterpillars eat, grow, poop and make their chrysalises. We waited patiently for the caterpillars to turn into butterflies and we marveled at the sight […]

Our Epic Field Trip to Robert Bateman Secondary School

Our class had an epic day today (according to more than one KinderPal)! We had been invited to the Sustainable Resources  12 class at Robert Bateman Secondary School by their teacher, Ms. Bacon.
