We have been working hard in Grade 1 & 2. Learning how to learn is hard work, but it is fun. We have been talking a lot about honesty this month in our Classroom Championsunit. Sometimes telling the truth is hard and we don’t want to do it. We have read several different versions of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, including The Wolf Who Cried Boy.
We discussed how and why being honest is important.
To sum up the month of October it was busy!! Check out this short slideshow to see some of the things we are doing in our class.
We have been working on Science Fair projects. Many students in our class have not done Science Fair projects before so we decided we would do some experiments and enter them into the Eagle View Science Fair as a class. Last week we did 5 different experiments, went through the scientific process and Monday we will get ready to present our projects as a group. Each child will be part of a small group who will present to the judges during the Fair. I have tried to introduce various ways to record and observe.
Students have chosen, or in some cases names have been drawn, to determine which experiment they will wish to present at the Fair. I welcome you to stop by and view the projects on Tuesday afternoon or ask your child to tell you about the experiments we have completed in class.
This is a video we all created using video as a observation tool. After we recorded our observations and learn about the science of why the leakproof baggie works.
