April 27 at Creekside: Games, Activities, Exercise, Music...and so much more! Free! Come one, come all to celebrate outdoor learning.
The goal is to use a North American First Nations technique to derive the height of tall objects, such as trees. It works like this. All sides of a square are equal in length. There are 4 x 90 degree angles in a square. If we bisect a square from corner to opposite corner, we are left with a triangle with 2 x 45 degree angles and 1 x 90 degree angle.
An Idea by Jason Camp for Grades: Kindergarten to Grade 12 students
1. Have the students mark the middle of their paper with a stick drawing of themselves.
2. Have them mark north on their map
3. Move outside to any location and help the students get oriented with their paper in relationship to the points on a compass. It might be easier for the students to face north with their papers adjusted the
reflect that setup.
4. Make sure students are spread well away from each other.
5. For 3-5 minutes, have the students just sit quietly (no talking to each other) and listen to the world
around them. Their job is to note down either with words or quick sketches what they are sensing
with their ears - NOT their eyes.
For example, if you are near a road, you might hear the bus trolley lines, or the sound of cars
travelling over a bump in the road.
6. Bring the students back together and debrief on what they were able to sense using just their ears.
What do you notice about the world you are walking on? What is under your feet?
Evoke Sense of Wonder: Everything, eventually, goes back to the Earth—so what really have you been walking on? The remains of ancestors? The dampness of water that was once in an ocean far away? Imagine that with each step a ghost escapes. What ghosts of flora and fauna float around you? Extension—Art activity by Adelle Caunce
Let’s clean up our beaches to keep eco friendly environment. Many sea creatures get injury from disposed garbage in ocean. Please help our beaches to be safe place for everyone!
