In Social Studies we’ve been focusing a great deal on what is unique about the land in our three Canadian communities, and this week we used all that we knew about the geography and climate of Meteghan to create art representing the village at Christmastime. Although temperatures are quite mild in December in Nova Scotia, there is sometimes snow, and the students did an excellent job of representing the fishing industry, rocky cliffs, and charm of this East Coast community. There is even a very convincing painting of St. Mary's church!
