Saving Birds of Prey!

Div. 18 decided on their own to make and sell book marks.  A few students approached Mr. Bondi on their own to sell the book marks 25 cents and laminate them.  He said yes and now our whole class is busy making posters, signs, book marks, advertising and promoting their cause to help O.W.L. Orphaned Wildlife!  Not only do they help owls but other birds of prey.  They had come earlier this year as part of our science and nature curriculum.

Here is the link to see what OWL does for birds of prey!

OWL needs to buy a new home as the one they are renting continues to flood.  The molt is not good for all the birds nor the many volunteers that donate their time and care!

Help us help OWL move and return birds of prey to the wild!

Everyone save your dollars as OWL is coming June 20, and June 21st for a wonderful photo opportunity and all monies go to help OWL!

*June 20th only... from 11:30 to 1pm for $10 you can have a photo taken with a real Bird of Prey! or for $5 you can have a photo taken with Oddy the OWL Mascott (like the Easter Bunny photos).

*June 21st from 11:30 to 1pm you can have your photo taken with Oddy the OWL Mascott for $5.

Everyone making signs...

Author Annette LeBox

Not only did Annette LeBox come to visit our school as an author of some amazing books about the animals in Maple Ridge, but she came into our class to teach us about 'Leaf Classification'.  Not only was she a teacher and now is an author but she is also a naturalist.

We learned about compound and simple leaves.  Lobed vs. Toothed and three types of veins... Palmate, Pinnate, and Parallel.  We get to test out our leaf classification on our trip to UBC Research Forest.

Showing how the author edits the illustrations to match the story...

Magic socks!

                       Thank you for sharing such wonderful leaf classifications with us...

Thank You Annette for signing our Sandhill Crane Pictures.
