Learning About Rocks & Minerals

This Friday we learned about the 3 types of rocks!

Sedimentary


                                   
      Just like the layers in jello!



                              

                                     Igneous


                                Granite is like a muffin!

                                                  
                   Metamorphic

              Just as granite will turn into gneiss when you add heat                                   and pressure, look what happened to the muffin!

Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village

On June 7th we had a wonderful field trip to the Ukrainian Cultural 
Heritage Village!  We all learned a great deal about what it was
like to come from the Ukraine and settle here in Alberta.  The Ukrainian people got 106 soccer fields of land if they came to Alberta. That's a lot of land! The teacher was strict he checked our fingernails and sacred most of us. The police station was fun and we got to try out the jail cell. The judge came and gave us our punishment of picking weeds or running around the tennis court 4 times. It was a great day!
