  1. The *Field Trip

    Introduction
    The grade six and sevens went to a *field trip at South March Highlands in the forest. I was very excited to see all the cool plants in the forest.

    We had three tour guides. There names were Martha and her two students were Katrina and Andrea. First the grade six went with Martha to see the *Beaver Lake. We looked at the special Canadian Rock.

    There was green *fungus on the rock. Martha gave us some *magnifying glasses to see *closely. It looked really cool with the magnifying glasses. After we got to take some plants. I got a milk*weed plant. The *Aboriginal people used these for milk.

    Then we took some more plants. After we got back to the bus,we the grade six went with Katrina and Andrea. Katrina and Andrea decided a game that was soo much fun! After we were done we went in the bus and came back to school.

    Conclusion
    After all the *field trip was lots of fun. I learned more than I thought I would. Best of all we had the best tour guides Katrina, Andrea and Martha. I hope we go again soon!!

  2. Our field trip to South March Highlands was cool. We learned about different types of endangered plants and we saw different types of biodiversity. To be honest I found it quite interesting and fun.

    We had three main tour guides; Martha Webber, Katrina, and Andrea. At the first stop we saw the Canadian Shield which was like an unborn forest. On the Canadian Shield we saw different types of moss.

    Then we went down a path and saw a dead tree lay there on the grass, we found out how old it was by the rings along the trunk of the tree. We could tell it was several hundreds of years old. Then we saw another tree with fungus around it. It was weird and wacky shapes, it was an orang-ish colour. Martha said it was cancer on a tree.

    After our tour with Martha, we went with Katrina and Andrea to play a game. We played owl, there would be an owl and everyone else would be a mouse. The idea of the game was to hide from the owl but you should be able to see him/her from your spot.

    It was fun but then we saw mullen,a plant softer than a baby’s bottom. We also saw sawdust, they throw it out instead of recycling it! But you can’t blame them, It’s a law!

    In conclusion, our field trip to South March Highlands was a blast. You really should visit it before they blow it up and build houses over it!

  3. On Tuesday November 1st, the grade six and seven went to the South March Highlands. This forest is in the risk of getting cut down.We had a great time! We got to do so many neat stuff, and I’ll tell you about it.

    When we arrived, we met our three guides, Martha and her two assistants, Katrina and Andrea. First we went with Martha to see the Beaver Pond side. There, we saw a rock called a Canadian Shield. We inspected the green things on the rock with magnifying glasses.

    Then we went to the Beaver Pond, which was unfortunately fenced up, so we went back to the meeting place (the parking lot). When we reached there, We met with Katrina and Andrea, who let us feel beaver skin and a beaver skull. Then we got these colors which we had to match with stuff in the forest.

    After that, we played a game where on person is the owl, and every body else is mice and must hide from the owl. Soon we went to a place that was clear cut, and found that soft plant. We also found a leaf you can use as a band aid and even eat! After, we went back to bus, and we saw a woodpecker on our way! Finally we boarded the bus and left to go back.

    This field trip was a great learning experience, and we had a lot of fun! I loved it and I hope we can go back in the spring or summer, so we see the beautiful creations of Allah (swt).

  4. On Tuesday November 1st we went to South March Highlands (SMH) in Kanata for our field trip. We went there to learn about bio-diversity and aboriginals that used to live there a long time ago.

    When we got off the bus we met our guide Martha Webber. We were supposed to go to both halves of SMH but they were bulldozing and blasting parts of the forest so we could only go to Goulbourn Forest. We weren’t allowed to go to Beaver Pond to see the beavers and otters because it was fenced off.

    Our guide showed us many plants. One of the plants she told us about was a tree that produces a very sticky sap. The aboriginals used it like glue to fix their canoes. They also used it as a medicine. It cures many diseases and also tastes good. They also told us about a rare plant called ginseng. They haven’t found it in that forest yet but they know its there. If they found it again it could be enough to stop the forest from being developed. They also told us about pine trees. The natives used the pine needles and boiled them and drank the tea from it. It can also cure colds.

    They also told us about the aboriginals. They told us that they had a very strong connection with the forest. Anything they hunted, they used every part of that animal and didnt waste a thing. They also didn’t hunt or take more than they needed.

    We also learned about the Canadian Shield. The Canadian Shield is a rock. There are about 20 in Canada and a few in the United States. That is where most trees can grow best. It is the start of the forest. On the trip we go to use magnifying glasses and look closely at the Canadian Shield. When we looked we saw many plants living on it such as moss. Now that development started they are blasting the Canadian Shield.

    Now the forest is in danger of being bulldozed and blasted. When we were there, we heard a horn to scare off all the animals, then we heard an explosion (the blasting of the Canadian Shield). The Government came to the forest before they started to blast and bulldoze it and they spray painted orange around the trees that are in danger of being extinct. They took seeds of those trees to plant them again and preserve them so they won’t become extinct.

    The whole trip we got to pick up samples of leaves, mushrooms and plants. There was this one plant that was very soft and that the natives used as toilet paper. Once the plants get old they turn into a stalk and then if you shake the top, the seeds fall out. It was a very fun trip.

  5. On November 1st 2011, we went to the South March Highlands. The two places we saw and went to were close to the beaver pond and the Goulburn forest . It was an informative trip here is more information about the trip.

    When we got off the bus we met our tour guides at the meeting spot (the small parking lot) in the forest. Their names were Martha Webber and her assistants Andrea and Katrina. We went in the forest with Martha first, close to the beaver pond.

    When we were entering the forest we saw this rock called the Canadian Shield it goes all over Canada. Then we went deeper in the forest and saw all sorts of plants and trees. Then we saw orange fences we could not cross, because there doing constructing and taking down parts of the forest. The problem was that the orange fencing was in front of the beaver pond.

    Then we headed back to the meeting spot and met Andria and Katrina. We went to another part of the forest and played a game. In this game there is one person is an owl the owl can’t move its feet only the head, and everyone else are mice we have to hide were the owl can’t see us. After that we went to this bulldozed area and we even heard the builders exploding rock mostly the Canadian Shield.

    I enjoyed this field trip a lot and I hope we can stop the constructers and save the forest. I really had fun in this trip and if it is Allah (swt)’s will it will be saved.

  6. On Tuesday November 1st the grade six and seven class went on a field trip to South March Highlands which is a forest. This forest is in a risk to be cut down. We had an amazing time. We also got to keep some neat stuff from the forest.

    When we arrived we met Martha Webber and two assistants, Katrina and Andrea. First we went to the Beaver Pond side. On the way we saw a rock called the Canadian Shield. Martha gave us magnifying glasses and we saw green stuff on the rock. She also said that the rock was almost a million years old.

    Then we went to the Beaver Pond. Unfortunately we couldn’t get closer because it was fenced up so we went back to the parking lot. When we reached there we met Katrina and Andrea and they let us feel beaver skin and a beaver skull. Then we got color cards and we had to match them to something in the forest.

    After that we played a game where one person is an owl and everybody is mice and we had to hide from the owl by camouflaging to nature. After that we went to an area that was clear cut by bulldozers. We also found a plant with soft leaves. We also found a leaf that can heal cuts and also act like natural band-aid. Finally we boarded the bus and came back to the school.

    Overall the field trip was a fun and learning experience. We had lots of fun. I hope we can go back again so we can explore the wonderful creations Allah (swt) has created.

  7. On November 1 2011 we went to the South March Highlands, near beaver pond aka kizell waterway in Kanata.

    When we arrived we met Martha Webber, Andrea and Catrina they were very nice guides!We were split into 2 groups with the gr.7.We first went with Martha then with Andrea and Catrina, to explore biodiversety and how the first natives lived.

    When we met Martha Webber she talked to us about alot of facinating things.We got to see how the beaver cut the tree and got to take a piece!Unfortunatly we weren’t able to see the lake because it was all fenced so that they can blow it up.We even got to see and stand on the canadian shield, which is more than a thousand years old!!We tryed to find the Jinsing plant but we couldn’t because it’s so rare.Then we came back and switched so that we can go with Andrea and Catrina.

    Then we went with Andrea and Catrina and they talked to us about which trees are maple and which are pine,we all got to smell maple syrup and smell the pines which are like mint.Then we played a game with the owl and the mice and I was the owl!It was really fun.We also learned what the natives used to use as medecine.Andrea told us how they used to use a specific kind of plant as torches.

    Inconclusion, we had an awsome time and we learned alot about biodiversity and the natives I can’t believe that they are going to blow it up. I wish I can go again before it is all gone!!!

  8. Aliyah H
    On November 1st 2011 our grade six class went to a forest. The beautiful forest is called the South March Highlands in Kanata. Our class enjoyed this field trip Alhamdulillah.

    It all started when we came off the bus, we met our guides. Their names where Martha Webber who is 89 years old, with her assistants Andrea and Katrina. They all had a time to talk about their selves and tell us why we where there. We went for Biodiversity and Aboriginals.

    Our first tour was with Martha. Martha took us to the other side of the forest to see the beaver pond called Khizel Waterways. When we entered the forest we saw a rock. We stopped and explored the rock. The rock was a Canadian Shield. It had green stuff on it that was mixed with fungus. To explore every little bit of fungi, we used magnifying glass. It was very interesting. As we went further in the forest we saw a tree that was caught down. The tree was At least one hundred years old! We wanted to go further in but there where orange fences blocking. The orange fences where there because the forest is on development. Martha explained about what was happening to the forest.
    We then went deeper in and saw a contractor. He explained how they would blast the forest and tell us what he did. He also told us why there was white spray paint on plants. He told us that those certain type of plants had to be saved from getting blasted. We finally reached the beaver pond. The contractor told us that he saw a beaver swimming about a half hour ago. We all got excited, but unfortunately an hour was over so we had to go back. We were a little early so we were waiting for the other group.

    Once our next tour guides Katrina and Andrea came we all got a paint card. The paint card had different shades of a certain colour. While we were waiting for everyone to get a card we touched a beavers jaw and its fur! When everyone got their card we went in the forest and looked for any shade of the paint card colour. Once everyone got a chance to find the colour we learned how to indentify different trees. After, we played a game about an owl and a mice. There was one owl that can’t move anybody part but its head clockwise and counter clockwise. If you got found you sit in the middle. After playing we all sat down in a circle and closed our eyes. We could not talk for one minute, it felt so nice feeling the beauty of nature. After relaxing we went deeper in the forest where it got blasted. We saw different plants like milkweed which natives use to eat and some soft plants as toilet paper etc. We also saw a plant that you can eat, use as a bandage and something that you can use to make tea. An hour was over and we went back to where we started.

    By the time we came back, it was time to leave. We all gave a big thanks to Martha, Andrea and Katrina. We then where offered to help save the forest. If we could come here again, I would be honoured to. Thank you Tr. Heifa, Tr.Amira, Tr. Naimo, Tr. Kherta and the parents for makking this field trip a success! 

  9. Grade six and seven field trip:

    On November 1, 2011 we went on a field trip to South March Highlands in Kanata.

    It was a wonderful and amazing trip! When we arrived we met our wonderful tour guide Martha Webber and her lovely assistants Katrina and Andrea they were all really a delight to have.

    For the first half of the trip grade six students went with Martha to the first half of the forest and the grade seven students went with her assistants Katrina and Andrea to the second half of the forest.

    While we were with Martha we learned about multiple things such as: the different types of trees, moths, fungis and many other things. As you may all know the forest is being demolished bit by bit. Martha told us something that could potentially save the forest. Martha said that if you found a plant called the ginseng that small yet very rare plant was the key to saving that forest. Unfortunately no one found the plant. Many of us also collected quite a bit of things such as: moss, milk weeds, beaver chips and many other items. While our tour was coming to an end, we saw a contractor and he showed us real beaver dams and a pathway to the beaver pond. At the end of the tour, we also saw plants called Velcro. It was annoying since it was very spiky and sticky. It was very amazing what we discovered in just the first half of the forest.

    For the second half of the trip we went with Martha’s assistant Katrina and Andrea. They led us to the second half of the forest. It was miraculous to see all the beautiful nature and their sounds. We all discovered sap from a pine tree. It was so amazing. It smelled like fresh pine. We also learned that the Aboriginal people used to use sap. As a class we played a couple of games with Katrina and Andrea. We played a game where one of our classmates would be an owl and the rest of us would be the prey. The owl would try to find its prey without moving its feet or body. The person that the owl doesn’t find wins. After that Katrina and Andrea took us to a place where we saw a plant that was very soft. We were also told that the Aboriginal people used to use this plant as toilet paper. We were all amazed that they used plants for toilet paper. By that time it was time to come back. It was also quite amazing in the second half of the forest.

    As the trip came to an end, everyone collected some souvenirs as well as received a complementary calendar from the wonder tour guides. Everyone surely enjoyed the trip as well as learned new things. I hope we have the privilege of coming here one day if it is not demolished by the time we get that privilege.

    Thank you very much teacher Amira for taking us to the forest and spending your time with us as well as arranging this field trip.

  10. INTRO
    On November 1 we went to South March Highlands. It was an exotic forest. Most of all the WHOLE gr.6 class loved the the experience.

    THE JOURNEY BEGINS
    First we went on the bus. It was a long way but worth it. When we got off, we met our guides. Their names were: Martha,Andrea and Katrina.First we went to the beaver pond.

    THE LEGEND IS OUT
    We learned about the forest but that wasn’t all. We learned that the forest was going to be destroyed.But we also learned that there was a plant that could save it. Its called Jinsing. We almost found it but we did not. But we didn’t check the whole forest.

    THE GAME
    Next we went with Martha and Katrina. We played a game. There was a person who had to stand in one place. Everybody hid around and the person had to find everyone. In the end whoever was not found and were the closest, they would win. The ending is near.

    CON
    Even though we didn’t find Jinsing, we gave some donations to the forest in the end. The ride home was relaxing.We collected some plants so we shared our findings. This field trip was green.

  11. On November 1st, we went to the South March Highlands. It was very interesting because it was a beautiful place and sad because it was getting bulldozed.

    First we met our guides, Martha Webber and her assistants Andrea and Katrina. They talked about the forest a little and about how they were going to cut it all down and build houses instead. Then we went with Martha to see the Beaver Pond. It was a very interesting walk, but when we got there, we couldn’t see the pond. They had fenced it up and we were not allowed to go.

    While we were with Martha, she showed us different plants. Some were the Milkweed and the Butternut tree. The Butternut tree is an endangered tree. It was marked with orange spray-paint and a contractor we saw said they were preserving that tree and all the other trees that were marked orange. One of the trees we saw used to be very tall, but fell down and another fell down because it was so old. Martha took us to see the Coat of Arms, a rock that spreads under the entire forest and had plants growing on it. When an hour passed, we got back to where we started.

    Once we got back, we went with Andrea and Katrina to the Goulbourn Forest. First, we tried to find all the colors of a rainbow in the forest. While we were looking, we found some pine sap that was very sticky. After that, we played a game when everyone pretended to be a mouse and Noor was the owl we had to hide from. Then we sat down to listen to all the noises. We could hear the wind, birds, planes and bulldozers. We then went to an area that had been completely cut down, but there were still lots of plants growing.

    This fieldtrip was very interesting. We learned allot of things about nature. It was also very sad since they were cutting it down.

  12. Fieldtrip

    On November 1st, the grade six and seven students went on fieldtrip to South March Highlands. We enjoyed exploring the forest very much, but at the same time disappointed that it will be cut down.

    When we got there we met our three tour guides, Martha, Katrina and Andrea. Katrina and Andrea both took courses from Martha, and now they are her assistance. We first joined Martha exploring the forest, and then we joined Katrina and Andrea to play a game.

    Martha Webber showed us many different species of plants and how to identify them. We saw a variety of trees such as the butternut. We even saw a tree that was about 100 years old! Few trees were spray painted in white, meaning it will not be cut down. We learned many uses of plants. The Aboriginals used a very soft fuzzy plant called the melon plant as toilet paper. They also used the bandage plant as a medication for cuts. They would take the leaf and stick it on top of the cut, just like how we use bandages. We got to see another plant called milkweed. It was used for milk. We were told about the ginseng plant. The ginseng plant is a red rare plant, which could be used to cure cancer. This plant may be enough to save this forest from being cut down. We also saw the Canadian Shield. It had a type of green fungus on it, it was cool. My favourite part was when we got to use the microscopes to get a closer look at the plants and the Canadian Shield.

    Next we joined Katrina and Andrea. We got to touch beaver fur and its skull! We played two games. In the first game we played, we were given a color. Our job was to find as many things possible that matched our color. The second game we played a game included an owl and mice. One of the students would be the owl, and their job was to spot the mice without moving their body, they could only move their head. The rest of the students were mice. They were supposed to try to camouflage themselves so that the owl wouldn’t see them. The last person standing wins the game! In the last activity we sat down in a circle, closed our eyes, and listened to the sound around us. We heard the wind, the grass moving and the workers. We had a great experience.

    Unfortunately, this forest will be cut down. There was red fencing in most of the area. We couldn’t go to the Beaver Lake because of this reason. There was also red spray paint on trees that will be cut down. South March Highlands has many different animals, for example: snakes, beavers, birds, dears, moose and much more. Imagine how many animals will lose their homes. The workers blow a horn to warn the animals that they are exploding dynamite, to get rid of rocks. Gladly, there will be a petition to sign. Please save this forest!!!

    We had an amazing time at South March Highlands. I learned many new things and hope to go back soon! We had a successful trip!

  13. On Tuesday November 1st we went on a field trip to a forest. It was called South March Highlands We all enjoyed it alot.

    We went there to learn about biodiversity. Also, aboriginals believe that the forest is sacred land. When we got there we met our guides. Their names were Martha Webber, Katrina, and Andrea. For our field trip we were split into 2 groups.

    For the first half of the field trip we went with Martha to the Beaver Pond (A.K.A Kizzel Waterway). The first thing we saw was the Canadian Shield was a rock that was so big it went all the way to Labrador. She also told us that it was millions of years old.We also saw a milkweed plant and a butternut tree. We saw many more things too.

    For the second half w went with Katrina and Andrea to the Goulborn forest. The first thing we did was that we got colour cards and we had to find something in the forest that maches the colour. After that Andrea told us about the sap that was coming out of a pine tree. She told us that the aboriginals used to use the sap as glue and that it also tasted good. Later we did another activity. It was kinda like Hide And Seek, except with an owl and mice.

    Overall we had an awesome time collecting and learning about nature and plants.I hope to come back here again sometime.

  14. Field Trip to the South March Highlands

    At 9:30 November 1 2011 we the grade six and also grade seven went to the South March Highlands. This is a forest in Kanata. It was a pleasant field trip. It was a sunny day, but it was windy. Our tour guides were Martha Webber and her assistants Katrina and Andrea.

    Our day Started on the bus. We didn’t go the way we usually would have gone but the other way. We still went on the highway, but instead of the East way we went the West way to Kanata. It took us 15 minutes to get there to the South march Highlands. When we arrived to the forest, the grade six and seven were separated because there were two sides of the forest. This forest is getting cut down and made for homes.

    Our class the grade six started on the Beaver Pond side of the forest. Our tour guide then was Martha. We first went to this special rock named the Canadian Shield. We used magnifying glasses to see the moss on the rock. After seeing the Canadian Shield, we moved on. We next saw a broken tree. We learned that dead trees have more living things such as bugs and insects in them. Next we saw a tree that was chipped from a beaver. We soon saw some maple trees, but we couldn’t go down for the beaver pond because it was getting ready for development.

    When we finished seeing the side of the Beaver Pond we went to the other side of the forest. This time our tour guides were Katrina and Andrea. We first started out with a game of match up the colour with an object. We then looked at a pine tree. When we finished looking at the pine tree we played a game of camouflage. This game is where there is an owl and there are mice. The mice have to hide from the owl and when the owl can’t find anyone else, the people who wouldn’t be found by the owl won. We also looked at various plants.

    Our class collected a lot of items from the field trip. We collected really soft leaves, we collected milk weed plants and we collected seeds from both plants:
    the seeds for the soft leaves and seeds for the milk weed plants. We also picked up other leaves and other items on the way.

    This was a really delightful field trip. We got to explore a lot; we also collected many stuff and learned a lot. In this trip we got to explore the outdoor and have fun at the same time!

  15. Bassima Ramadan

    On November 1 2011 we took flight on an amazing journey to South March Highland Forest with our amazing tour guides:
    Martha Webber, Andrea and Katrina guided us through the pathways of the forest with their unlimited amount of knowledge about the forest!

    Our field trip started off with the amazing Canadian Shield which had many crystals as well as carried many memories. After that we explored the wonders of plants such as the extremely soft Melon leaves which the aboriginals used as toilet paper. As well as the Butternut tree, (almost endangered) Basswood ,and many other leaves which were used to cure cancer , a cut ,and so on. We also visited the milk weed which is a type of food for butterflies as well as many more amazing plants!

    But, all is not well .You see, there is a depressing story behind the leaves. This beautiful forest is owned by a company who is in the making of destroying this wonderful gift from Allah and replacing it with houses. Our grade 6 class has seen some fenced areas which we were not allowed to cross as well as spray painted orange trees which meant they were marked to cut one of them almost endangered (Butternut tree). We also heard “the horn to warn” which the constructor blew to warn all the animals in the area because they were exploding the area and the animals habitats.

    For the half of our field trip we played a game called the “the owl and the mice” were 1 student was the owl and the rest hid. If the owl sees you he calls out your name and you are out . After the game , we found a pine tree which contained sap which the aboriginals used as glue. We also saw the birch tree and birch bark which the aboriginals used as mega phones, homes, flammable wax coating for torches, raincoats , art and so on . We then saw ,some berries and leaves the aboriginal peoples used as food or flavours.

    As we were walking , we ran into a contractor who showed us the beaver pond ,were all the beavers and otters swim as well as the pathways of the white tailed dear and all the preserved trees that

    In conclusion we all the an amazing time I hope we come back soon inshaalah!!!!!!!!

  17. South March Highlands

    On November 1st we went to the South March Highlands which included Beaver Pond and Goulbourn Forest. Our Guide was Martha Webber with two assistants: Katrina and Andrea.
    Have you ever seen the Canadian Shield? Our first place to discover was the Canadian Shield; we even stood right on it. Martha gave each of us a magnifying glass. We looked at the moss and plants growing on the Shield. Never before, I experienced crust of the earth so close to my feet. Have you ever seen the woodchips left after a beaver?
    After we finished with plants, she took us farther, into the Beaver Pond. There we saw lots of different kinds of plants, like Mullen and milkweed. Martha also said that you even can find Ginsing and other plans that cure cancer. I even collected the woodchips left after a beaver. Have you ever been a mouse or an owl?
    Our next stop was Goulbourn Forest, but this time Katrina and Andrea were our guides. Each of us got paint strips of different colors. Our mission was to look for the objects in the forest with the identical colors. After that fun part began. We played a game called:”Camouflage”. One person was an owl, and the rest were mice. The “owl” was allowed to move only his/her head for 360 degrees, but no movement. “Mice” are supposed to hide in the forest. We also had a chance to touch real beaver fur, a real beaver tail ( not the one you can eat at the Canal) and a beaver skull.
    I learned many things on this field trip like, that everything in the forest is useful and nothing is waste. I also collected many different plants. The field trip was a success. It was a really really fun trip.
