This week we went on a field trip to the Alex Youck Museum located inside of the Board of Education Office in Regina, Sk. This museum was set up like a one room school house where the students got to experience what it would be like to go to school in a one room school house. We later went back to the school at the end of the field trip and said our goodbyes, as it was the last day of our field experience with this classroom.

We had more special guests come to visit our classroom during my field experience once again. This week it was a FIRE DEPARTMENT from here in Regina, Sk. The students practiced calling 9-1-1 in case there was ever an emergency, the importance of knowing your address, and the students practiced going through a smoke tunnel exiting “their bedroom”so they would know how to exit their home if there was ever a fire.

This week we had a special guest come into the classroom during my field experience. She shared a story about a turtle and other animals (moose, beaver, porcupine, and frog) and explained how they related to the months. She then told the students that the First Nations people did not have a calendar but they needed a way to mark the passing of time so they used the 13 parts (they called them the 13 moons) that are on back of a turtles shell.
