Science Experiment and Picnic

September21

On Monday, I would like to take the class across the road to the park for a picnic.  Please pack an appropriate lunch and if you have one, also a picnic blanket to sit on.

If by any chance you have an empty 1.5 or 2 litre pop bottle, we could use some for Mondays science project.

The Lost Ladybug Project

September11

As citizen scientists, we have decided to be budding entomologists and help real scientist study the distribution of the nine spotted ladybug.

Parents and students can get involved in their own time as well.  You can even simply download the app and start photographing ladybugs.  It’s easy and fun.

The website is http://www.lostladybug.org/participate.php

Have fun with science!

Probabilty

June7

In math we are learning about probability.  If you are having any trouble, this is a great resource (Math is Fun)  to explain things again.  Click Here

So grade 3 & 4’s, what are some examples, in your daily life that you rely on probability.  For example, the weather report or that the subway will get you to school on time.  I know that it will take me about half an hour to drive to school.  So if I give myself half an hour, I will probably arrive on time.

Field Trip

May26

What as amazing field trip!  

This week we visited a real animation studio and learned about the process of creating an animation film.  The Toronto based Production Company that we visited, is a leader in the field.  They are currently producing a number of children animations such as, the ‘Cat in the Hat’ series.  The two CEO’s and cofounders are great female role models, being successful and influential women, at the top of a dynamic and competitive industry.

Stayed tuned for the successes of own budding young animators.

The girls are currently working on ‘pitches’, of a children’s television show, that they would like to see.

Write your understanding and feelings about garbage pollution in our oceans and more locally Lake Ontario.  Also, what are some simple ways that we can all help save our oceans from pollution?

Artemis has already competed hers and it is a fantastic example.  Check it out:
