Welcome to Week 6 of Home Learning.  Hope you are still able to grabs lots of photos for the arrival of Spring assignment. The assignment this week is designed to help you with alternative fire making. Alternative fire making is having the ability to begin a fire without the use of matches/lighters and is a skill that can help in a time of need.  Read the instructions carefully and please document your attempts and send them in an email to justin.cortes@nbed.nb.ca. I would really love to see your attempts at this. If you are having trouble please feel free to contact me for a little support.

Thanks and have a great week! 

Hope everyone is getting a chance to spend lots of time outdoors.  This week is Shelter making time. In our climate you can have a beautiful warm spring day, only to have snow two days later. Having the skills to create a shelter could help you in a time of need. See the attached document for this weeks instructions. Please capture picutres and videos and pass them along to me.

Have a great week!

Hope everyone had a great Easter Break. This week we have a two part activity to challenge us with. April 15-17 you will begin a litle research.  I would ask that you take a look at the Scavenger Hunt list on the attachment and ensure you know what each item is on the list. This will require some prep work to become accustomed to the items. I recommened using the follwing website: https://treecanada.ca/resources/trees-of-canada/ to study the different types of trees/leaves found in our region. As for the animals I will leave that up to you to navigate. 

Starting next Monday you will be required to complete the Scavenger Hunt. I recommend you Download the app "I naturalist" to your phone if possible. This is one of the leading Nature apps avaialble and will assist you in identifying specific things in nature you may be unsure of. Attempt to find as many items as possible. Please take pictures of items as you find them. Arrange the pictures in a file and send your results to my email: justin.cortes@nbed.nb.ca
