Math: This week we continued to use our dice game to review place value and large numbers. We also used this as an opportunity look at writing large numbers. We finished the week off by completing the, “My Favourite Not Yet,” activity, where we searched for and corrected errors that are common when writing a large number.
Science: We started the week by reflecting on what we learned during our Ralph Klein Park trip. Students were asked, "What purpose they thought a wetland has in an ecosystem? They reflected on how humans impact wetlands and to shared a couple ideas about what sparked their curiosity during our trip. These reflections have been submitted to Seesaw. If your child has not completed all of the questions they have been asked to complete them at home over the weekend.
Humanities: This week we continued our work on identity. Students wrote an autobiographical poem that included many elements of “who they are”. We enjoyed a day at the Glenbow Museum. Students had a guided tour of some exhibits and worked on their exploration skills. In the “Letter Zed,” program students were introduced to several elements of Canadian identity, and learned how historical events and people shaped this identity. This is our next focus in Humanities, and the trip served as an introduction. Coming up students will explore historical people and events that are important to Canada’s post-confederation history and will chose to defend the group, person or event they feel is most important to Canadian Identity.
