Students from Matthew Halton High School (MHHS) took part in Experiential Learning Week (ELW) from Monday, October 19 - 23. The students took a single immersive class in a option of their choice that they were then enrolled in for the duration of the week.
Toni Lucas - Animal care class covered the care of all animals whether furred, finned or feathered. The class went to the zoo, and had a pet-parade show and tell. The care and feeding of animals was the focus, creating more empathy and understanding among the students. A few of the projects included making bird feeders and chew toys.
Fall 2015 ELW programs and activities included: Sewing, Ultimate Frisbee, Butcher, Edible Gifts, Film Study, Animal Care, Drama, Basketball/ Volleyball, Hockey, Junk Yard Wars, Outdoor Survival, Knife Forging, Painting/ Drawing, and Photography.
