Grade 4 & 5 Linden School

Your opinion matters

Canadian Currency


Yesterday in class we were examining Canadian money.  We explored the various Canadian icons found on our notes and coins, like the Bluenose schooner and loons.  This examination included the Queen and some other significant people.  We learned about who these people were and why they are deemed important enough to be on our currency.

But choosing people to represent our nation can be controversial.  For this reason I gave the class the opportunity to voluntarily find out why the $10 note has been in the media lately.  Two students (Penguin and Storm) took up the challenge and presented their findings this morning.  Click here to see what Penguin discovered.

Social studies project due next week


Extension Granted: Project due Monday 18th December at the latest

All the class are working very hard to complete their social studies projects.  Most students need to work on them at home.

Click here for all the criteria 

Last week one of the grade 4 students already presented a completed project, on ancient Egypt and what an amazing job she did.  Her project was part poster board and part slide show.  She addressed all the criteria and her research is impeccable.

Do a great job, the bar has been set very high!

Social Justice Data Fair


What a great morning!  After all our hard work, our projects for the social justice data fair were fantastic.  Thank you so much to the parents who came to check them out.

I promised the class if they worked really hard (which they did) and if they completed their passports to an exemplary level, then we could have a pie party on Monday.  Well the verdict is; looks like we are having a pie party on Monday.  Students are welcome to bring a pie along and I will bring a couple too.  If you have any suggestions for the type of pie, then leave me a comment.

Have a wonderful weekend.
