GRADE 4 THINKS AND KNOWS

At the beginning of our unit: The Lucky Planet, we use the program ‘Comic Life’ to create an “I think” page for each student. The page had to do with what they thought about the Earth in relation to the solar system (seasons, night & day, gravity). After the unit was nearly finished,we went back into the same document and changed our “I think” to “I learned or I know”. We compared the documents and posted them.

 

     

GRADE 3 FORCES ON BICYCLES

Grade 3 classes studied how forces make work easier.

They used the application Pages to recreate accurate graphical drawings of a bicycle. They learned how to draw with shapes and lines, fill with colour, change the thickness of lines, layer images, move images and label with text boxes.

They each designed a bicycle and labeled it with the forces that are used.

GRADE 1 ECOSYSTEM MAPS

In Grade 1 the children used the program Kidspiration to demonstrate the parts of the ecosystem of the rainforest and what animals and plants are in each part. They used arrows to show connections between the different elements.

GRADE 5 FINDS OUT ABOUT THE PAST

Grade 5 learns that there are different ways of finding out about the past. They sample artifacts, primary and secondary sources. This short video shows one student’s exploration into a past event as she recounts the event and uses varied sources of information.

GRADE 5 BUY LOCAL ANIMATION

The Grade 5 Exhibition this centered around the idea that “What we do now affects the future.” One group decided to study the environmental concerns around the topic of food. This clever animation shows the impact of buying produce grown locally compared with produce grown far away. Who needs a lot of words, when pictures show the whole story?

G5 GROUP ROLES

A very important skill for our students to learn is how to work cooperatively within a group. This video shows viewers the different roles that group members can take and how to effectively work with all group members.
