Huge Snowshoeing Adventure

After two weeks of practicing and building our stamina, today was the big day! We joined Mrs. Buchanan's class and went for a big walk to the Rod's field. Once we were there we put on our snowshoes and ran around in a field of deep snow.  The snow was also just right for building snowmen and forts! 

During our adventure we:
-used our knowledge of position and motion to move heavy snowballs.
-tested our understanding of surface area and weight distribution, using the snowshoes.
-took care of our friends by making sure everyone was able to get their snowshoes and gear on.
-tested our physical stamina by walking a total of 5km!!
-picked up garbage to take care of our community and the Earth.
-read street names and signs along our way.
-worked as a team to move objects and build structures.
-noticed the direction of the wind and how it affects the temperature.
-wrote and sang a song about Winnipeg.

Most importantly, we had FUN!
