Green Action Team

Today we had a visit from Mary. She works at the green action centre. She came to teach us about composting. Composting needs air and water and food. The food needs to be raw and from plants. Never put animal products in a composter. Compost comes from plants. Soil comes from rocks. Soil does not come from composters. The food for composting makes the critters happy. We learned about outdoor composting and vermi composting. (That's indoor composting.) Red wriggler worms are used instead of beetles and earthworms. Never feed avocados or potatoes peels to indoor composters. Never feed rhubarb leaves to an outdoor composter. We were suprised to find out that composting does not stink.

Be kind Winnipeg!

Today we talked about how our city is challenging everyone to show that Winnipeg is kind. We discussed kindness and how important it is.  We used the 5 w's to think about kindness and what it means to us. Then we went and wrote from our hearts about kindness so others could be inspired to be kind.

Learning about our global address

We are learning where we are located in the world. In our global address we have a first name, a family name, a house number, a street, a neighbourhood, community, city, province, country, continent, and planet ! We have learned a  rap sing for our city and a lullaby for our province, next up... A song I like to call the Canada Conga!!! Stay tuned for the YouTube videos!
