During their unit of study on Ancient Civilizations, the Grade Three students were excited and keen to learn about Ancient China. They completed a cross-curricular project for Social Studies and Art where studies included an in-depth analysis of geography, government, inventions, family life, religion and cultural connections. The students proudly displayed their Chinese Lanterns along the hallways in the main corridor.
Recently in Grade Four, the students had the opportunity of sharing their knowledge of their research during their unit of study of Canada’s Regions, through creative choice projects. They were given numerous options of presenting their knowledge and comprehension of their topic: designing a game, to act as the Mayor of the region and write a list of ten rules that they would implement, to write a song describing the region and some issues that their region faced, to create a travel brochure while outlining the attractions, to build a diorama depicting the landscape and industry in their region, to name a few. They were proud to present their information and share their findings in an interesting, creative and meaningful manner.
Grade Two students show that ‘Kindness Matters! Students shared personal attributes that they admire about each other and then each student read and decorated their inspirational poster board.
Grade Threes have fun with STEAM! Students worked on constructing windmills using our ‘littleBits’ circuitry kits. Some students tested how to attach 9V batteries to the kit for power while others tested which switch option turned the blades the fastest. The students were asked to focus on teamwork and reflect on their ability to work together.
