General studies homework – Due April 6th

Hello grade 4,

This week’s homework is linked directly to your Innovation Day write-up. There is no formal Math homework or quiz this week. Please see the optional section of the homework sheet.

The task is to complete the background information section, your hypothesis and procedure. As this can be written paragraphs, a series of images or a video recording. An interactive blog post would have elements of each of these media. Click here for a model blog post.

We will also be working on this in class. A productive homework plan could be to write up a section at home then come to school and check in with Ms M.

Rain Day Fun Day!

Trying to find a way to link building a chemical reaction volcano when that is not in the science portion of your grade level curriculum… EASY! Read The Wild Robot and create an alternative ending…

It is a loose connection (I know!) but it sure was fun building volcanoes and watching them erupt! What else can you do on a Rain Day Fun Day (Reimagined winter fun day!) Here are some of the volcanoes…

Bell Let’s Talk Day 2022

Today in Grade 4, we discussed what self-care is and ways that we can look after ourselves.
Students talked about things they do for enjoyment or to find calm in their lives.
Next, we created a self gratitude list where we listed and celebrated positive things about ourselves! These are coming home tonight so keep the talking going…
Our final mission is for students to secretly ‘post’ a message of gratitude to another person in the class or a simple positive comment to share with everyone into our grade 4 gratitude box. This is an ongoing project for the rest of the year and we pledge to share positivity each week.
