Today we had a field trip to Tynehead Regional Park. Through Parks Metro Vancouver, we participated in an orienteering and mapping skills workshop. It was great to be outside the whole morning, even if it did rain a little! First, we learned about the elements of a map and how to use a compass. Then, we imagined there was a zombie apocalypse, hid an antidote, and had to leave directions on how to find it. This is the part of the trip that most of us liked best because we got to hang out on the trails and in the forest.
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
