Toronto Catholic District School Board

It started with a conversation about our favourite books. We talked about the main message from the book, an important passage from the book and why we would recommend the book. You can see some of the book posters below (these are now on display in the Chapters book store at Kennedy Commons).

After our book posters were completed we came up with the two main places most of us get our books from - the public library and Chapters. Seeing as how Chapters was easier to get to, we decided to visit them for a half day field trip.

 

Questions were asked in advance by the students that were delivered to the Chapters store manager.

 

Some of the questions included

 

How many books do you have?

Do you have to pay for the books

Why do you like working at Chapters?

How many pages are in the books?

Where do you make the bread (that one was probably for Subway!)?

On Thursday, Mr. Nemes' Gr. 1 class and Ms. Ironside's Gr. 2 class along with Mr. Fernandes ventured out for a TTC bus ride down to the Chapters store at Kennedy Commons. Once there we met with the store manager Ms. Williamson who answered our questions and showed us around the book store. We also tried looking up the books we did our book posters on by using  the Chapters' computer.

After the book store visit came to a close, we went to Subway Subs for lunch before our return trip to school by the TTC bus. It was a fun filled day of learning. You can see some of our thoughts below.
