1948 Fraser River Flood

The 1948 Fraser River Flood was an important event in the history of Agassiz. We know because Mrs. Cardinal's grade 2 & 3 students are learning about the flood, how local dairy farmers worked to save their cows, and how many different people helped the people of Agassiz in their time of need. Like so many projects, this one started with a book; Flood Warning, by B.C. author Jacqueline Pearce.  Today the students visit the Agassiz-Harrison Museum to study photographs, artifacts, and newspaper articles written in 1948. 
We are building a wiki to collect materials, share our questions, and build our knowledge of the 1948 Fraser River flood. 
What did you read today?
