WDM Virtual Camp 1 In the Air July 13 – 17, 2020
Explore Saskatchewan’s living skies! Discover birds and butterflies in your own backyard, record-breaking weather events like the Regina Cyclone and the history of the Snowbirds and aviation.
Activity #1: Welcome!
What is your first name? Where are you from? How old are you?
For the first day of camp, we all want to meet each other, even if we can’t do that in person like we normally would! Let the WDM know where you’re from by posting a hello and a photo to our Kudoboard.
Caregiver note: This is not a private board. Please make sure your children do not post anything you are uncomfortable with them sharing. Photo release link.
Day 1: Airplanes of Saskatchewan
Learn what an ornithopter is and about different planes that have flown in our Saskatchewan skies.
Day 2: Birds & Butterflies of Saskatchewan
What birds and butterflies are in your backyard? Learn about a few of them – then see if you can spot them! Plus, build a birdfeeder and make a butterfly bracelet.
Day 3: Land of the Living Skies Games & Crafts
Listen to a story about the Land of the Living skies, make a pinwheel, and stare up at the clouds in the sky. Then, put your creativity to the test painting the Northern Lights.
Day 4: What’s in the Weather?
How often do you pay attention to the weather around you? Today, we’re going to listen to a story about a little cloud, start a weather diary, go cloud-gazing, and make an anemometer. Also, we’re going to find out when the hottest day ever recorded in Saskatchewan was and just how hot it got that day.
Day 5: Snowbirds 50th Anniversary
Learn about the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, 431 Air Demonstration Squadron. How did they get their name? How fast do their jets fly? Make a Snowbirds inspired kite, colour in their famous formation, find out about the contrails behind their jets, and more.
