Answers to Questions.

Sponge Activity

Have students come up and make a

collage postcard pulling images from
Crowsnest Pass to complete it. Ask
them to help write five sentences about
the Crowsnest Pass and why they
should visit.
Transition to next activity. Now we are
going to try this same activity but you
all get to choose either Saskatoon,
Meteghan or Iqaluit. I expect you to do
your very neatest cutting, gluing and
printing because I will be collecting
these for marks and we will be
displaying them tomorrow. That means
you have 25 minutes to finish today so
use your time wisely. There are lots of
pictures that Im placing on the back
table. They are not sorted so you will
have to figure out which pictures goes
with which community. Iqaluit will
probably have lots of snow, Meteghan
will be by the ocean and Saskatoon will
be flat. What is a good strategy before
you start cutting and gluing your

Images students pull to

represent Crowsnest
