Join us on a sweet adventure through the south
During the spring of 2015 the grade 4 students of connect charter school went on an amazing trip called the southern Alberta history tour with all they’re peers ,teachers ,and parent volunteers to learn and have fun. they traveled on a great big luxury (traxx) tour bus. To they’re first destination the ROYAL TYRAL MUSEUM. where they learned all about the hoodoos and dinosaur bones. Delicious nutritious meals were devoured by all. Then they were taught to make casts of a dinosaur bone of their choice. Then they had sleep in the triceratops museum room. The next morning they prepared for departure and although they had an exhilarating experience they had to move on to the next adventure.
When the grade fours arrived at the Nanton bomber museum they all looked at the big metal hangers in excitement. They where toured around and educated about all the planes bye one off the staff. The grade fours also had free time after the tour to explore the planes and even go in some of the planes. They took pictures and had a whole lot of fun. However they had to leave soon to catch another bus ride to the third and final destination before going home.
All of them had a long but still fun bus ride to the frank slide interpretive centre. When they finally arrived they had some time to stretch their stiff legs. But then they needed to offload their luggage from the bus. Grade fours had another tour inside the building of all the interesting exhibits that helped them learn all about this antique devastation. The grade fours had a nice dinner and set up their sleeping area. They had a long sleep until the sun cracked into the sky. After their morning routine they packed up all their belongings for that would be the last day of the majestic tour. But there was still some fun left. All the kids walked down a hill to the equipment shack where they geared up for something amazing. Grade four kids put on a safety hard hat with a light and set off for the mine. They had an amazing tour of this extravagant old mine, being taught things the whole way. At the end each kid was aloud to take a hunk of coal from the rustic old mine and bring it home. Sadly the grade four kids all needed to return home with a long bus ride. when they arrived back at the school they were warmly greeted and hugged by their families.
