Our grade 2 program focuses on the water cycle. Students will spend the day exploring a variety of hands on centres that teach them about the different aspects of the water cycle. With access to Dunville Creek at the new Lewx Qwò:m Park, students will be able to see the former water intake for tap water in Chilliwack as well as participate in a Boat Race with boats made from natural materials. One or two classes at a time.
Our grade 3 program focuses on different uses for the forest plants (including past and present First Nations uses), trees and animals. Students will hike into the forest and do a plant identification activity with common plants found in the forest. Students will have the opportunity to try stinging nettle tea, make art using smashed plants, hike 2.5km and explore the forest with hands on stations. One or two classes at a time.
Students will learn about Forest Succession and "perform" a Forest Succession play with props. Students will hike through new and old growth forest to demonstrate how a forest grows. Additionally, students will learn about the animals that live in the community forest using puzzles and visual signs. One or two classes at a time.
The grade 5 program reviews the curriculum from the previous K-4 field trips and also introduces forest safety. Students will learn how to use a map and compass. The field trip will also include hands on stations and a longer 5 km hike with basic orienteering. One or two classes at a time.
