HAVE A LOOK INSIDE!
Each year Mrs. Avnor's classroom does The Culture Box Exchange. We send in little artifacts from where we are and they send in artifacts from where they are too. This year they sent in artifacts from Alaska. We got so many cool things from them! They sent raw goods like salmon, and even a tire! They brought in their favorite books and a hockey puck. This was an amazing social studies experiment. By Joe M.
The first thing we got was a boot that they use to track through the snow.
The second thing we got was one tire that they use for their bikes when it is snowy. The tire has studs on it to create friction.
The third thing we got was a book that talks about their city.
The fourth thing was a shirt that had a picture of their school mascot.
The fifth thing was mountain goat wool. It had a lot of things in the wool.
What was cool about the starfish was that the kids found them a lot when they went to the beach.
The seventh thing is a rock that the kids painted. They paint the rocks and then sell them.
The eighth thing was their state flag.
The ninth thing was an Alaskan abc book. It has mostly all plants and animals in Alaska.

The Good Field Trip by Isla and Makenna
This field trip was really fun. We went to Claire Gempp Davidson Memorial Conservation Site.First we went to the forest. We saw a turtle and lots of birds and bugs.The next ecosystem we went to was the pond. In the pond we saw a lot of snapping turtles. We also saw geese and fish and I accidentally dropped my net. We also saw a goose egg and a orange fish. We also saw the prairie and we saw a dead squirrel and other plants like poison ivy. Then we found some spiders in the grass. One hundred years ago there was a dairy farm then it turned in to three ecosystems. Then we went to the restoration area. We listened to a lot of birds and took class photos. This field trip was very fun.

Today we went on a field trip to Claire Gempp Davidson memorial conservation site with the mosaic teacher. We saw a dead squirrel at the prairie. A turtle at the forest. We saw a mother goose and a father goose and their four BABIES at the pond. Over 100 years ago the conservation center was a dairy farm and we found the steps to the barn and the bench and the entrance. It was between 59 through 70 degrees and then at the very end it was 72 degrees and the water at the pond was 62 degrees. We saw an egg on a litte island at the pond. In the pond we saw goldfish. Also we saw fungus and worms and ants and spiders. We had the best field trip EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
