… The Manitoba Museum
On February 1st, 2019 the Kindergarten to Grade 2 classes went on a field trip to the Manitoba Museum. The classes participated in some educational programs put on by the museum. They also had a chance to do some exploring, and learning through play.
The Kindergartens enjoyed participating in a program about Dinosaurs. They got to look at fossils, dig up dinosaur bones and even put on a play about dinosaurs. Students also got to visit the planetarium and learn about constellations. In the afternoon, both Kindergarten classes participated in a Science program about colours. They learned about how to make secondary colours. They enjoyed visiting the Science gallery, and making their own cars to race.
The Grade One class had a great time participating in the Sensational Science program. The students had a chance to participate in a few science experiments involving their five senses. The highlight was tasting ice cream!! In the afternoon the Grade One class learned about similarities and differences between people around the world. They were able to try on some different cultural outfits and then learn about some of the different houses people live in.
Ms Langois, and Miss Baillie’s classes really enjoyed participating in the Growth and Changes in Animals program. The students looked at different animals from around Manitoba. They touched a snake skin, a skull, and smelled an elk! These classes also took some time to watch various experiments involving changes in matter. The students had a chance to explore the Museum, and Science gallery as well. The Nonsuch boat, and the water works area were especially big hits.
All of the students had a great time at the Manitoba Museum. It was a very successful field trip and the students learned a lot!
