Here are some of the things they learned....
Andre- " I learned we can recycle bottles, cereal boxes and plastic boxes."
Kyiah- "We can not recycle food."
Lydia - "I learned that shoes can be made out of recycled bottles."
Brooke- "I learned from Mr. Standish what to recycle."
Yohanna- " We recycle so the trees don't get ruined and flowers don't die."
Natasha - "Now I know that Dunkaroos go in the blue box."
Cheyenne - "I learned that we have to recycle or the trees and flowers won't grow."

Important key points to TALK with your child about:
- the 3 R's - REDUCE RE-USE RECYCLE
- R is the 18th letter
- Yes, Tim Horton's cup and lids can NOW be recycled
- It is important to recycle because we want to reduce the amount of garbage and pollution, to protect the natural resources and to save land space.
- Also, Mr. Standish discussed the importance of sorting the materials appropriately into t he red box and blue box. .

Moments I was able to capture..
Community Visitor -- Dairy Farmer
I was very proud of the students during the question and answer period. All students asked questions!!!
Some of the questions asked were:
- Are all cows black and white?
- Does it hurt when you remove the cows horns?
- What are boy chickens called?
- Do you have pigs on the farm?
- How do cows have milk?
- Do rabbits eat carrots?
1st day -- Design a picture using white glue, then sprinkle salt over top of the wet glue. If you look carefully the salt reacts with the glue and makes it puff out.
2nd day -- Paint over top of the glue and salt mixture
