Humanities- Students viewed a documentary that took them on a cross-country tour of Canada. They began creating a Canada One Pager to demonstrate their understanding of the video’s content, as well as their own prior knowledge. They will continue working on this next week. Our Caldecott books were narrowed down to a field of 20. Students took another look at each of the books and used the criteria to rank each book. We will choose our winner on Friday of next week. Our top titles are going head to head, and students will be very sad to see some favourites eliminated. Students will begin crafting a persuasive letter to Mrs. Veteikis. They are making a case for, and requesting that their favourite Caldecott eligible title be added to our school library collection.
Math - This week we learned (or reviewed, for some), the traditional algorithm for multiplying. We also tested 2 conjectures around multiplying double digit numbers. We are close to wrapping up our multiplication analysis and will be moving on to methods for dividing. Continue to practice multiplication facts at home as fluency in those will aid in students ability to divide.
Science - In Science this week we shared our weather instrument videos with each other and looked at ways of measuring weather. We also began to explore air/atmospheric pressure and the role it plays in weather.
