Gr 1 Week of 11/10/17 Community Walk

Dear Families,

In social studies we are going to start exploring the diversity of communities and learn that families live in different neighborhoods.  To begin this investigation we are going to look closely at our school community.  On Thursday, November 9, 2017 101 and 102 will go on a community walk at 10:15.  During our walk students will be looking for answers to the following questions:

  • What languages are spoken?
  • What kinds of stores/restaurants do we see?
  • What streets are named after people.
  • Are there any fun places in the community?

Please make sure your child is appropriately dressed for this activity. We will be walking around for about an hour.
