Some of my favourite core subject field trips included: rafting down the Bow River on ‘River Watch’ to learn about water quality, going to the zoo to learn about biodiversity, going to a sushi restaurant to learn about Japanese culture, and watching a radio show (play) to learn about short stories. These field trips were all a great way to either start a new unit or end one. Unfortunately, there have been no field trips for math!
Probably one of the best field trips I took was when I went to ‘We Day’. It was a very inspiring day filled with amazing people and musicians including Craig Kielburger and Spencer West. I cannot wait for more field trips to come this year and for the great learning experiences that accompany them. Learning at MPS will always be exciting and cool.
