Week 5 - Over and Under the Pond
This is the week we do our water walk. I chose “Over and Under the Pond” written by Kate Messner & illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal to get your mind thinking about the water in our lakes on Salt Spring Island.
This story takes place far away from here. Over and Under the Pond describes a pond ecosystem in the Adirondacks at twilight from the viewpoint of a young boy in a canoe.
My favourite: Read quietly and listen to the waves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOzspL1n-bw
Should you want to have the story read to you, listen to Over and Under the Pond here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwW69AgRGLI
So now that you read or listened to the story, what are you wondering? What are some things you notices or learned?
Compare this pond to one of our lake that you know on Salt Spring Island.
What are some things you are wondering about when compare the pond to our lakes?
Write down some of your questions.
