Grade 4, 5 and Middle School students learn how to make fire with and without the use of matches. The grade 4 & 5 objectives of the day was to setup and start a fire with a single match, as well as maintaining a cooking fire. The Middle school objectives of the day was to start a fire with flint and steel as well as using friction to create enough heat that a fire could be started from it. Overall, it was a tough day for all the students, it they did not give up, and it ended up being a great learning experience for everyone.
As part of our nature studies, the students went to the beach to collect materials to use in their artwork.
One of our objectives this year is to create art from natural materials. We can't wait to see what students will create from what they found on the beach.￼
