In the year 2001, there was a grade 3 class of 27 who went to Stephen Avenue
in Calgary, Alberta. We went here because we are studying about the history
of Calgary and these are some of the oldest sandstone and limestone buildings
in the city. We went on a delightful field trip on a school bus. It was a
sunny, warm day in the fall. The trees were super green.
We entered a huge building called the Glenbow Museum and looked at old pioneer
things like: a women's dress, bow and arrow, pioneer on a horse, old fashion
iron, and an old fashioned washing machine. After lunch we went looking at
all the old buildings along Stephen Avenue. It was very interesting to see
these old buildings. It was also cool to see the places where famous Calgarians
may have gone in the past.
We made this website to show you what we are learning about Calgary's past.
In here you will see:
· Pictures of the real buildings
· Our drawings of these old buildings
· Faces of famous Calgarians from the past
· Stories we wrote about these people
We really liked going on the field trip and drawing the buildings. It was
also neat to see all the old sandstone and limestone buildings.
We hope that a lot of people from different countries will see this website
and it will tell them information about Calgary's past.
A note from the teachers:
