Latest Happenings May 2017
Grades K - 1
For April to June, one of the themes for the K-1 students at Pear Tree Elementary is Plants & Pollinators!
Through picture books, non-fiction books, art projects and technology, Pear Tree Elementary students will be learning about both plants and pollinators in the Lower Mainland, their symbiosis and their impact on humanity.
Pear Tree Elementary students will be participating in a variety of gardening activities, visiting some amazing Vancouver gardens, raising butterflies and ladybirds, and studying about bees. The Pear Tree ‘market’ is even turning into a mini gardening store!
Students will go on monthly field trips for each of the course topics, including VanDusen Botanical Gardens.
The students are also continuing the Salmon Project. Pear Tree Elementary students are raising 55 Coho salmon eggs and will be doing a broad and in-depth study of salmon:
• their habitat,
• symbiosis with other woodland animals,
• and their life-cycle.
