Spotted at the University of New Brunswick - art made entirely from plastic bags. Part of a reduce and reuse initiative. #funinfourth
All ready for the @cwsf_espc opening ceremonies. We had an excellent first day getting oriented!
We are making our way through the Social Studies curriculum by integrating with Language Arts. Students wrote an informational piece (newspaper article) to summarize the Oregon Boundary Dispute of 1846. You can find this lesson on my TpT ship on its own or part of my Economic and Political Changes that Shaped British Columbia bundle. #funinfourth
One more fur trade visual created by my students. The Hudson’s Bay blankets and tiny clay food are 😍😍😍. These ladies paid such close attention to the details! #funinfourth
We have been busy the last while making Plaster of Paris masks. These masks are moulded from each child’s face. Every mask is decorated to showcase an aspect of their self-identity. We are now working on writing pieces that justify the elements added to masks. This is my third year with this task - you can read all about it from year 1 on the blog. #funinfourth
Today is a crazy day of ❄️ and ☀️. I’m working to help students finish their essays for @cwsf_espc national science fair and marking some things as well. What are you up to? #funinfourth
Today was round 1 of 2 of fur trade presentations. Students worked in groups of 2 or 3 to: - select the best location in Canada 🇨🇦 for a fur trade post - create a visual of their post (using Lego, a drawn blueprint, Minecraft, or a traditional diorama) - orally present their justification I am so impressed with all the little details they included! What a fun way to summarize our learning! #funinfourth
Fractions are on the day plan for this week! Last week we reviewed Grade 3 concepts and this week we are ready to try some trickier things. Tomorrow we are going to fold fractions bars from paper strips to have concrete models to help us compare and order fractions. Wish me luck with all the folding! That might be the trickiest skill of it all. 😂 #funinfourth
