Wax Museum

Each of Ms. Younger’s grade three and four students in division 9 researched about a famous current or historical figure and wrote a biography on him or her.  They had the joy of demonstrating their learning by dressing up in character and hosted a “wax museum” in our learning commons library.  They stood like wax figures until someone would approach them with a greeting or a question, at which point, they gave a short oral presentation on their character’s major accomplishments.  What a fantastic way to display their learning!

Surrey Museum in Cloverdale

The grade 3 and 4 students in Mrs. Younger’s class enjoyed their field study to the Surrey Museum in Cloverdale.  As part of their social studies curriculum, they visited the museum to see how Surrey has changed over time.  They liked being able to enter and experience Eric Anderson’s cabin; Eric being one of the original residences of Surrey.  “There were many artifacts and old items that used to belong to the Katzie and Semiahmoo peoples,” wrote one of the students from division 9.  The students went to the textile studio and did a weaving workshop using old fashioned wooden looms.  We appreciate the parents who were able to make this trip possible by taking some time out to transport the students to the museum where they could experience some hands-on learning
