Elementary School news

Grade 3 and 4 students showcased an aviary for their final presentation of their bird unit during February. In preparation for the aviary, each student researched a bird of their choice, wrote an essay, created a costume, nest, playground and some other form of presenting like a song, powerpoint, model, poster etc. They then sang a song describing the different types of beaks and feet of different birds and "became" the birds for the aviary.

Parents, teachers, and students were encouraged to walk from bird to bird listening to the birds describe themselves.
