Beaver Lake Park and Making Totem Poles

We had a fabulous time at Beaver Lake Park on Monday.
We learned about totem poles and how they are made.  We read a trickster tale about the Raven and how he got the sun into the sky.  We saw lots of ducks and looked for beavers.  The kids were very interested to touch the carved beaver's tail and run their fingers over his big teeth.  We each made our own totem pole and covered it in animals of our choice.  What a cool day!
