Yesterday students got to play various Indigenous Sports and games as a way to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day and our annual sports day! Students played games like Shinny, hacky sack, stick pull, and other fun activities! Students got to enjoy the sun and cool down with some freezies at the end of the day! Room 9 also made a chant that they sang throughout the day to cheer each other on!
This week in math, students explored 3D shapes and how they can be used to construct different structures. Students made cylinders, cones, cubes, and prisms using play-dough and toothpicks. They then participated in a STEM challenge of who could build the strongest structure with just 3D shapes.
This week, students finished their Entomology Project and presented their findings to the rest of the class. Not only did students get to share their research with their peers, but public speaking is a great skill to foster in students! Students also learned about camouflage and how animals play "hide and seek" in nature. Students each got their own bug to camouflage somewhere outside. They hid grasshoppers and praying mantis' in the grass and leaves, beetles and flies were hidden in the dirt, and bright yellow bees blended into dandelions!
Students will receive their report cards on the last day of school (Thursday June 28th). If students are not present, their report card will be available for pickup in August.
Can't believe we only have 4 more days together as a class!
Room 9 & 11 will be sharing their learning every Friday.
