There is nothing more spectacular than the dramatic changes of leaves in Fall. The Maple trees are at their best and the largest ones are found right along the BC coast. The Maple Leaf is our National Symbol and found on our flag, penny and coat of arms. Through various activities, our preschool and daycare children at Futurekids Centre learned to recognize this icon and increased their awareness of colours, shapes and leaf patterns.
British Columbia has the most totem poles in Canada. In Vancouver alone they can be found at the Vancouver Airport, Stanley Park, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Downtown Pan Pacific Hotel and White Rock Beach. Our Children at Futurekids Preschool and Daycare enjoyed this most popular tourist attraction on our field trip to the Laity Pumpkin Patch. They also heard totem pole tales and matched a variety of totem poles.
Forests are one of the most important natural resources within our province. However, this valuable resource is not unlimited and our children at Futurekids gained knowledge about how to manage and protect them.
Some of the world’s best finishing is found right here in British Columbia. Fishing is about patience and persistence to accomplish a goal. When you go fishing, you do not immediately see results. But when you catch something, it is worth the effort. Our children at Futurekids strengthened their eye hand coordination and built their fortitude as they angled for Pacific Salmon.
How can we forget Halloween….
The best part of Fall in BC! We have our very own Lake Monster (Ogopogo) and Big Foot (Sasquatch). With music and movement, our children tramped through forests, climbed up trees, sailed on lakes and entered dark caves on mountainsides looking for Sasquatch. They heard the myth about Ogopogo and faced their fear of monsters in a dramatic play.
