Flood Watch 2011!

Welcome to our Flood Watch 2011!

Here we will have our guest bloggers, Ms. Martens' Class, keep us up-to-date with what is going on in their neck of the woods during the Manitoba flood.
Ms. Martens - since you will add to this page each time you post (instead of starting a new post), please start with the date and end with the blogger's name each time you post so we can easily see what is new. We hope you will also post photos to show us what you see! Start your first post below the Google Earth maps. Have fun!

April 27 - Thanks for letting us know! That is a really neat story. We would also like to ask Aylie to be careful. We think it is dangerous to drive through the flood water.

April 27 - Hi Mrs. Dent Scarcello's class.  This is a very good question.  The fish do swim everywhere. During the last flood the river ran into someone's pond.  When the water receded the fish from the river ended up in the pond. They had alot more fish.

April 25 - Hi Ms. Martens' Class! We have a question for you. We are talking about what the fish do during a flood. Our question is, do the fish from the river swim anywhere there is water during a flood? Or, do the fish from the river know where the river is and stay there?
17 of us think the fish swim everywhere the water goes.
3 of us think the fish know where the river is and stay there.
