In Grade 4 social studies, we have been learning about the great lakes across Canada. Students in Ms M’s social studies class have been hard at work building replica’s (please proceed with imagination!) From Lake Erie (with added Niagra Falls!) to Lake Superior, Lake Ontario and Lake Michigan and not forgetting Lake Lake Huron, we will tie this directly into our final project in which we learn about the physical regions of Canada.
We will be testing soon and video recordings uploaded to individual blogs…Watch this space…
…To quote one of the many exclamations of excitement in the Grade 4 science class this week! We recapped transparent, translucent and opaque objects, creating a window of objects. Then we extended our learning by exploring refraction and the different mediums through which light can transfer and how light can ‘trick’ our eyes into seeing a mirage of an object.
Today, we participated in Global Maker day today!
Grade 4 were super excited about getting space and time to be curious creators and innovative thinkers. Students had the opportunity to listen to the live stream showcasing how to connect and build global connections. Many students jumped straight in with the practical building task and others wanted to innovate using technology (coding!) Here are a few snaps from the day:
