Grade 5: Weather Detectives

Learn to read a weather forecast and build a shelter with the forecast in mind; take part in a knowledge-building circle about the water cycle; go on an ‘expedition’ in which students find water in its many forms; observe clouds from our observatory; and use your detective skills to find some of the ways that we at Echo Pond have adapted to the climate in our corner of the world (hint, hint: we have several renewable energy sources!).

The Science portion of the program is based on Unit 1: Weather.

This program also includes many other classic Echo Pond activities including playing “camouflage”, orienteering with map and compass, nature journalling, Newfoundland fairy stories, and an evening campfire.

After your visit, use our new illustrated map of Echo Pond as a tool to reflect on what you’ve learned, and deepen your learning.
