Science Fair Stage One Worksheets

Science Fair Stage One Worksheets

Just a reminder that Stage One of the Science Fair worksheets are due this Wednesday.  Each student (even if working in a group)  should be submitting one Information Sheet this Wednesday.  This will be primarily a project completed at home, however there will be school time provided along the way and opportunity for feedback given to my students.  This is a mandatory project for 4/5L and students will be assessed on their depth of knowledge and the scientific process in their final presentations.

The next stage of this Project will be provided on Wednesday.  Good luck and if you have any questions, please ask!

Today we continued making our videos to demonstrate knowledge of “conflict” in a text.  Students explored conflict yesterday in The Little Mermaid and The Lion King with clips from these stories.  Today we read,

and talked about the conflict in this text.  Students are gaining an understanding of the 4 types of conflict:

Internal Conflict

External Conflict:  man vs. man

                              man vs. nature

                              man vs. society

All in preparation for writing our own narratives….

In Math, we moved on to explore volume today and learned about the differences between area and volume (2D vs. 3D).  Students constructed “Mat Drawings” and then built their 3D structures based on these drawings.

Reminders: 

Pizza Day will be moved from tomorrow to Friday !
