Sept 30

This week we look our PBL unit to the next level, with science experiments! We watched clips of “Ice Age Deathtrap” (Nova) and stopped to perform a few experiments:

  1. What exactly is one cubic meter of soil?
  2. How do geological timelines work when looking at soil levels
  3. What is a mastodon?
  4. How did the mastodon die in such great numbers?!

 

The answers:

In the afternoon Reading and Math we worked on poetry and place value/multiplication

Tuesday: In Theatre we finished up our story dram: “What to do with e problem” by looking at perspective. I loved the kids alternative telling of Jack and the Beanstalk and Hansel and Gretel. Poor parents, they just had kids who went to live with the rich neighbour!

In Project’s Club  we finished our poncho sewing projects and almost finished our sweatshirts!
