Experiencing the Land of Millarville

Students began the year with a field trip around the Millarville community investigating 8 different local historical sites. Students worked in teams to record pertinent information from the markers and take digital photos of the landscape. They then shared the significance of these areas with their classmates. These sites included original homesteads of early settlers, community halls, one-room schoolhouses, general store/post offices and an oil well camp.


Students spent time sketching and painting as part of their Art curriculum. They focused on aspects of still life, horizon line, background, middle and foreground, to further help them develop their awareness of, and connection to, the landscape in and surrounding our community of Millarville.
