On the 14th of November, Grade 2A, B, C and D went to CERES Environmental Park for an excursion.
North, east, south, west. That’s the way the wind blows. We can blow bubbles and we can also pick up leaves and drop them to see which way the wind goes. – Krew, Maddy and Sarah
Birds feed their babies by getting worms. Birds use their wings to fly. Magpies swoop people in breeding season. When the magpies are angry, they are ready to attack. Birds build nests to lay eggs. Owls sleep in the day and wake up at night. Birds have sharp claws. – Inkido, Aram and Shahwaiz
In the community garden, there were flowers. That means that fruit or vegetables are going to grow. Some people said it was a food maze. There were lots of plants growing and food like pumpkins, tomatoes, carrots and apples. Everyone could take some fruit or vegetables if they grow it there. – Joel and Zahira
Worms eat compost and then they poop out the compost into dirt to make worm castings. Worm castings mean worm poo. Worms have saddles. When the saddles come off, the baby worms come out. – Hannah, Emma and Maha
We are going to tell you about insects from CERES. When we were digging in the dirt, we found slaters, centipedes and worms. When we were holding the worms, it felt slimy and ticklish. When we saw the worm, we thought it was a girl but then Luke said worms are both girls and boys. We dug and dug and we found a worm and spiders. – Alana, Olivia and Enes
Yesterday we got bird food. We waited for Kim to pour chicken feed into the palms of our hands. We all threw the chicken feed at the rooster and chickens. However, they didn’t eat their dinner because they were probably not hungry. – Rayshan, Saad, Virraj and Riaz
We learned a lot and had so much fun.
