ALL ABOUT SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY
Take a browse below at a few of our experiments and creations
CONSTRUCTING A RAINBOW BRIDGE
SK/1 students gathered in small groups to construct a rainbow bridge to help our lucky leprechaun cross to retrieve his gold.
Students brainstormed materials necessary to complete the task, drew a "green"print of their idea, wrote out step by step instructions on how to assemble their bridge and then created a 3D structure using their design.
DEEP LEARNING WEBINAR
During our IN-CLASS "Deep Learning Webinar" with Heather Michel, the grade 1/2 class came up with a list of interesting topics they wanted to learn more about. After a point-based scoring system, we decided to research in "How are brains made?"
WOLF - PROOF ASSIGNMENT
During March Break grade 1/2 students were tasked with creating a "Wolf-Proof" house using various materials discussed in class for our Materials, Objects and Everyday Structures Unit. Here's some of the results...
WATER RECYCLING CHALLENGE
In a grade 1 class, we discussed water usage as an individual and as a class. We then drew up a water recycling chart to see how much water we could save in a week in our classroom by collecting wasted water and reusing it.
Students predicted how many Litres of water they thought we could save in a week, each day we recorded how many cups of water we were able to conserve.
I like to use this as my science template, so the students have a thorough understanding of the experiment about to take place. We first discuss what it is they would like to know, "our" question does not necessarily have to be the same for everyone. They are to then record the materials being used, how they are being used, and what they predict for the result. This worked well in our pH Experiment, almost every student predicted tap water to have a very low pH level.... however the results showed HIGH!
