SCOTSBURN – Students at Scotsburn Elementary have been making the most out of winter and utilizing their community resources with several outdoor education experiences.
Under the direction of physical education teacher Rebecca Baker, each class has had the opportunity to spend the day snowshoeing on Fitzpatrick Mountain trails. The students have been keen to look for signs of winter animal activities, and have witnessed the story that each track tells. The students have all finished off their day with lunch and hot chocolate in their outdoor classroom in the woods.
While back at school, classes have spent their physical education time outdoors and have been working on their igloo building skills. The students worked together to build an impressive full-size igloo in their playground.
The grade 4s and 5s have been taking lunch hour outdoors on the village pond, skating and playing hockey.
Meanwhile, the Grade Primary class travelled to SnowPak kennels in Riversdale for a day of dog sledding.
