Math: This week we explored patterns, beginning with a problem called “Garden Plots”. In addition, students looked at the relationships between numbers in a game called “My number, your number”. We looked at how in mathematics, unknown numbers can be represented by letters, and some students were able to see how pattern rules can be expressed using algebraic expressions. We will be continuing our pattern work this week, and will likely have a check-in towards the end of the week.
Science: Students worked on their mixtures and solutions scavenger hunt. This needs to be complete and submitted to FreshGrade. We completed the Oobleck Experiment on Monday. Students enjoyed the discussion about whether this mixture is a solid or liquid.
Humanities: This week we learned about latitude and longitude and talked about Canada’s first French colonies. We had the opportunity to visit Fort Calgary and learned about the North West Mounted Police and life in our city in the early 20th century. We also had the opportunity to practice marching and square dancing with Mr. Sweet. Both classes are getting very excited for our trip to Fort Steele.
