Start your day with a story time video of A Prairie Alphabet. Then, sing along with a rap song all about Saskatchewan Lakes and watch a video about roadside attractions all around our province.

As you complete each activity, share your work with other campers and the WDM on this week’s Kudoboard.

Activity #1: Welcome! (OPTIONAL)

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.

Did you know most of them are over 23 meters (75 feet) tall? If you laid a grain elevator on its side, it would be as long as a blue whale! Learn more about grain elevators, then test your eyes with two spot the difference games.

The full text is also located in the Make Your Own Roadside Attraction PDF below, under the section about Mac the Moose 

Small towns in Saskatchewan are known for having some of the most welcoming and friendly people in the world. Some towns go a step further by greeting visitors with huge mascots that rise high into the air. You can see these mascots from the road before you even turn into the community. These mascots stand for something unique about the town that they want to share with others.

In this activity, you’ll explore three of these mascots and then have the chance to make your own, celebrating the fascinating things about your hometown!
