Overwinter Animal Shelter - Creating a Biodome
We are learning about the many wild animals here in our area such as squirrels, chipmunks, moles, mice, voles, animals that overwinter are in a semi-hibernation state. Together, with a school parent who is an expert in this area, we are creating a biome for some of our local wild animals using 2 pallets. We are looking to fill our pallets with; pet fur, pine cones, hay, moss, natural (unfinished) cotton, small twigs and little bags of leaves, seeds (sunflower and bird seeds), wood chip shavings from the little rodent pets. This will become a biome that sits in the corner of the outdoor learning classroom. The animals and insects will be able to hibernate under the snow.
Mark your calendars for Monday, Dec.4th
Hilson students will be having dance workshops next week with choreographers from Momentum Moves. The parent showcase where each grade shows off what they were taught will be Dec.4th. Timing is still to be decided. Mark your calendars!
