We had a fabulous first day at the museum.  We met Michelle who told us where everything was.  In the morning we worked with Franklin who helped us learn (through photos and artifacts) about early Calgary.

After lunch, we went to an exhibit on the second, third and four floors and did some deep looking at the various items in each collection. 

 

We are really looking forward to having an opportunity to explore some more tomorrow.  Join us then!

Our Incredible Writing!

Today we had a few chance to start writing about the artifacts that we were looking "deeply" at.    Today we only had two opportunities of fifteen minutes to write.  Tomorrow we will have a greater focus on writing.  Take an opportunity to explore some of our writing from today.

Palden Lhama is really tough.  She wears .... around her shoulders.  She is sitting on a donkey.  She has a fire stick instead of her head.  She is fierce.  She has long ears.  By Bryce

 

 
Nitsitapiisini... our way of life.  Once upon a time there was five Blackfoot people and one of their masks was a blue and white kiddy mask.  Another one was a black and yellow fox mask.  Another one was an orange and green eagle mask.   The last one was a red and grey turtle.... to be continued!  By Jaxen

 

 

 
The Sun God Surya.  This is one thousand years old.  The Sun God Surya holds the two lotus blossoms which are his symbols.   By Kayla

 

 

 
One day there were five people that lived in a tipi.  One day they got out of the tipi to get food.  One of them got bitten by a fox and the other two had to carry him back to the tipi.  But it took a whole 200 000 years!  By Caelan
