It’s amazing what students can think of when there is snow and time to explore this bountiful medium!
Student reflections from the Global Climate March, Nov. 29 2019
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a sign or say anything. It just matters that you show up there. I had a good time. I have an idea for a sign: “Extinction is the worst. But what’s worse? its climate change” – Myles
Today was exciting, fun, can’t wait to do it again! It was loud. – Theo
Today was really crazy we saw people in bikini they must be cold. [Their sign said, “I’d rather be cold than hot”] It was very crowded; a lot of interesting signs and a lot of interesting chants. Like one that I remember “You can’t drink oil! Keep it in the soil!”. No dinosaurs. It was a lot colder and easier to walk a long way, although some people would disagree with me. – Chloe
The climate change march was tiring! – Henry
It was really inspiring and, but it was super tiring and it was super fun. – Olivia
It was good. it was amazing. And it’s very extraordinary that some people even know there’s climate change but they don’t do anything. It’s just so funny. That they don’t believe that it’s a thing. It is a thing! It’s gonna kill you if you don’t act now. That’s why we should have no more pollution. – Manus (So show up to the next climate march!)
The earth is a giant pizza and it’s about to get burnt in the pizza oven. – Raz
Highlights from our day:
Kai – I enjoyed dissecting the salmon and finding the different parts. I was very interesting, especially the air bladder and how important it was to the fish.
Jasper – My highlight for the day is that I liked to see the salmon run.
Olivia – I liked saving the eggs from the salmon. We buried them in the water. I also liked seeing the salmon run.
Xavier – It was interesting how the ducks ate the salmon eggs. I didn’t think they would.
Manus – I enjoyed dissecting the salmon and also seeing all the eggs and trying to save them. Eventually I fed them to the Mallards because I knew they could not live past the first stage because they could only live in gravel.
Theo – Playing cops and Robbers with Raz and Henry and Miles.
Miles – Dissecting the salmon, seeing the eggs, saving the eggs, and seeing the blood.
Astara – My highlight is seeing the salmon run and opening up the salmon and found the heart inside the salmon.
Henry – Playing cops and robbers with my friends.
Rowan – Seeing the eggs inside the fish.
Raz – Playing a story game with Henry.
Chloe – I think that seeing the salmon insides and knowing how they help the fish survive and grow is really important in helping us learn about them but all good things come to a end as the eggs got eaten by mallards.
Today we had a put-down funeral you might be wondering what is a put-down funeral well we made a stick raft made of twigs ,string, leaves ,flowers and paper with put-downs on them. You might be asking asking what is a put-down a put-downs are things you do not want in your life and words you do not want to hear. So we lit the paper on fire, set the raft afloat, and than we made a rock store and we threw rocks at it but finally people retrieved the raft. when we got back to tamarack we had a appreciation circle. We each had a piece of string, a person said something nice and gave the person who the complimented a bead to put on there string.
