On Friday afternoon, the Grade 2's were able to make a trip to Heartland Forest for Frog Fest! We learned many things about amphibians and got to see them in their natural habitat. We were so excited to see and learn everything- what a great day! Here are some pictures from our experience :)
Time to learn all about amphibians!
We talked about rabbit and beaver pelts and how their fur helps protect them from the weather!
Frogs are cool, but check out the size of a Chinese Giant Salamander :)
After learning about beavers, we checked out an area where they might build a dam to stop water from flowing, and make shelter for themselves.
Get to work you busy little Grade 2 beavers, and make your own dam!
Look at how we were able to build our own dam out of clay and sticks, and we even stopped the water!!
What a better way to end the day than to take a ride on the train!
What a great day at Heartland forest!! :)
Have a great day,
Mrs. DaCosta :)
