Extension Activities

Kindergarten – Draw a picture of your favourite animal and write down its name.  If you aren’t sure how to spell it, ask a parent, teacher, or older sibling.

Grade 1 and 2 Mini Research Assignment – You will create a new Google Doc and paste a photo of your favourite animal in it.  On the page you will include at least 3 facts you learn from Google about your favourite animal.  If you aren’t used to using Google Docs, you can draw and write everything you learn on a piece of paper instead.  If you’d like, you can share your finished Google Doc with Brigitte Ruel b.ruel@theojcs.ca

Your Assignment: Bunniculicious Salad

There is nothing Bunnicula loves more than veggies!  You are going to make your own Bunniculicious salad.  You can use any and all of your favourite veggies.  Just make sure you get help from a parent to chop them up.

Here are some delicious salad possibilities;

  • tomato
  • cucumber
  • olives
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • lettuce
  • spinach
  • celery
  • carrots
  • cheese (feta, cheddar, parmesan)
  • crumbled tofu
  • beans (chickpeas, kidney beans)
  • nuts

Easiest dressing ever: Thousand Island Dressing

  • Mix mayo, ketchup, and relish together.  Shazam.  Instant dressing.

Easiest dressing ever #2: Creamy Maple Balsamic

  • Mix mayo, balsamic vinegar, and maple syrup together.

If you want to share a photo of your finished salad, I will post them here.  Send them to b.ruel@theojcs.ca
