UE1 students spent the day preparing ingredients, making “sugo”, and making lasagna. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn some important practical life skills.
The Level Fours had a wonderful opportunity to participate in our rocks and minerals workshop earlier this week! They had a rocking good time!
Today the students were amazed by geologic time…They used their scientific skills as they investigated rocks and minerals under the guidance of a Scientist in the School. We learned about igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. The students tested for colour, lustre, hardness, streak, magnetism and reactivity to acid as they explored real rock samples. They were palaeontologists as they scraped the dust and rock of some 50 million year old fish fossils. Their workshop ended with a tasty treat that illustrated drilling for gold!
In honour of those who have died and those who continue to serve our nation and the world in pursuit of peace, today we payed tribute to their sacrifices and selfless service.
Yesterday we participated in our annual Thanksgiving Potluck along with the Grade 4, Grade 6, and Upper Elementary classes. It was so nice to see everyone who came out! Thank-you to all who contributed to the meal and who took time out of their day to come join us. We are all very thankful! Prior to our meal, the Grade 5 class brainstormed some ideas of why we can be thankful not only today, but every day.
Our Level Four students are working diligently to recreate the Pyramid of Giza. They have spent the last few weeks making wonderful connections between our Math Fair project and their study of ancient Egypt! Way to go Level Fours!
