Humanities- Students finished their Canada One Pager. Next week we will start a quick overview of each of the regions of Canada, as well as look at some primary artifacts from WWI. Our Caldecott books were narrowed down and a winner was chosen. Students know the final 5 books, but will not know our class pick or the official pick until Monday. Students completed 2 small assignments that allowed them to express and support an opinion. Next week 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- Students started the week with some inspirational math and looked at the benefits of taking your time when solving math problems. They took their time to solve a problem that required deep thinking and not fast thinking. Students started looking at methods of division as the week wrapped up. Next week we will continue with division strategies.
Science- Students reviewed the steps of the scientific method. This review of the method for conducting fair tests and experiments will used in the upcoming weeks as they design their own experiments in the weather unit.
