Students started their Small Crawling and Flying Animals unit this week and have so far learned about spiders, bees, and ladybugs! Students learned about some of the physical characteristics between insects and arachnids, as well as participated in a partner research project on their favourite bugs. Students also learned about the societal affect of a declining bee population and how bees are crucial to our agriculture industry. Students created a song and posters for our #BringBackTheBees campaign and will be presenting this song to various classrooms in ValleyView in upcoming weeks.
This week, we learned more about the prairie province of Saskatchewan and researched the natural resources it has to offer! Students learned about crops, livestock, grain elevators, and agriculture. Students also compared urban and rural communities and connected these terms to Saskatchewan, Calgary, and Iqaluit.
This week in Math students continued learning about measurements such as capacity, height, and time. In upcoming weeks, students will be starting their 2-D and 3-D shape unit.
