Project School Visit:
Queen Elizabeth Public School (Kitchener)

Visit sponsored by: Friends of the Environment Foundation

In November 2002, we visited Kitchener's Queen Elizabeth Public School with our juvenile female peregrine "Falon". Below is a comment from the school as well as a drawing from the students:

by Abdullah Amir and Ana Stefanescu

Maya came to visit our school on Friday, November 22, 2002.  She brought Falon with her as well as a video.  We got a small introduction to raptors and then falcons.  Then we watched the video for a few minutes.  The discussion that followed was excellent.  Maya had questions for us.  Some ofthe questions had to do with the video, and some from any previous knowledge we may have had.  Maya did a great job of keeping the students interested.  We then got to see Falon.  Maya brought her out and we learned more about Falcons.

Thanks to Friends of the Environment Foundation for making it possible for Maya and Falon to visit.

I teach Grade 3 and 4.  It was great that we learned something about their habitat which directly ties into the Grade 4 Science and Technology curriculum.  We also learned something abot the food chain, which is something I tie into the Grade 3 curriculum.

Overall, it was entertaining and informative.
