Ellis Bird Farm

We had a fun day of learning at the Ellis Bird Farm. The students built Chickadee nest boxes, went pod dipping, pet the baby animals, learned some facts about beavers, and so much more!

Grade 3’s, your challenge is to tell me one piece of information that you learned on our fieldtrip to the Ellis Bird Farm. It could be something about the beavers, butterfly house, or about some of the different birds.

Field Trip to Blackfalds Fieldhouse

We had the opportunity to visit the building site where Blackfalds’ Fieldhouse is being built. Terry, the project manager, lead the students through the various building stages. We saw the blueprints, beams, pillars, LOTS of TRIANGLES, and even learned what the inside of the Fieldhouse will look like. We can’t wait until the Fieldhouse is open in early November!
