Written by: Amelia Marcellus and Ella Rountree Iroquois Village This month, the Grade 3 students went on a field trip to an Iroquois village at Site Archéologique Droulers. In their Univers social class, they are learning about La société Iroquoienne. What better way to learn about this society than to visit real long houses and see how they really lived! When they arrived, they were greeted by a huge wall protecting the village called La pallisade and the man that runs this amazing site. He was their tour guide for the day. The Grade 3s saw the smoke houses used to cook the animals they hunted. They also saw that each long house had a picture of an animal above the entrance. These animals represent the different clans living in the village. Did you know that 20 to 50 people can fit in one long house?! It takes about a year to complete a long house. They also learned a lot about how they ate, how they slept and how they survived. Before heading back to Kuper, they had a treasure hunt to test what they learnt throughout the day. It was a fantastic and very educational day!
The student of the month in Grade 5 is Trey Deere. He is a new student at Kuper. Trey is enjoying himself with his teacher, Ms. Gillis, and all of his new friends in 5LG. He was chosen by Ms. Gillis because she thinks he is doing a great job academically and socially, especially since he is a new student! We decided to interview him: Q: What do you do in your free time? A: I like to play sports. Q: What is your favourite sport? A: My favourite sport is lacrosse.
