In grade 7, students are studying flowers and plant reproduction.  We dissected some tulips on Monday to get a close look at the parts of flowers.  On Monday, Nov 4 there will be a quiz that will involve labeling a diagram of a flower. (31-10-19)


The grade 6's are writing letters to the Minister of Environment and Parks to defend Fish Creek Provincial Park against the (imaginary) threat of destruction due to Mr. S. and his buddy "Billionaire Bob" wanting to build a luxury condominium complex that would require the removal of the forest.  The students are using their lists of ecological, economic and recreational reasons why forests are important .

The  grade 6 Science students are well into their study of trees and forests. We have been out in the schoolyard drawing the variety of coniferous, deciduous and deciduous conifers that we enjoy at our school. Students have collected leaves, learned their anatomy and created leaf rubbings which we will classify this week in class.

Grade 7 Science is also working on plants in the "Plants for Food and Fibre" unit. Last week we began viewing student presentations about herbal remedies for common maladies.  A variety of videos and slideshows have been created for our enjoyment and edification.



 Welcome to my Teacher Web Page. The year is off to an incredible start!  Please check your child's D2L BrightSpace pages for details about science curriculum and expectations.

I am the Science teacher for grades 6 and 7, as well as teaching Communication Technology for grade 7.

I am also overseeing the recycling effort known as Guerreros Verdes which involves students helping others to figure out what goes where when disposing of snack and lunch materials. Students are invited to volunteer to join us and increase our recycling and composting contributions and thereby send less waste to the landfill!
