Microscope Discoveries is a school program offered at the Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary.
On a warm but rainy fall morning, Grade 6 students put on their rain gear, took up their bug catching nets and headed for the boardwalk. There they discovered all sorts of critters they may not have even known existed, especially in our Victoria waters. Renée Cenerini, program manager at Swan Lake, then taught the students how to stage slides and take a closer look at what they found.
In the video above, you’ll see what experiential learning looks like at the Middle School and perhaps discover a few things you didn’t know about this urban nature sanctuary.
