4V took some time last week to put some of our learning into action. We've spent more than two months learning all about habitats and communities. One thing we learned was about garbage and the damage that it can do to an animal's habitat as well as an animal's digestive system. It also looks bad to see litter on the roads, sidewalks, playground, soccer field, and flower beds. We split the class into 8 teams of three and each group cleaned up litter in a different area of the neighbourhood. We cleaned up the school yard as well as 162nd Street and over at Holy Cross. It felt good to do good work!

Awesome World Geography Videos!

Here are two videos that are helpful with learning world geography!  The tunes are VERY catchy, but the songs move at a pretty quick pace.  Be aware that the second video is more that 10 years old and that some country names have changed since then.  (It's still worth watching, though!)
