Our interview with Cst McLaren went very well today! She brought along two of her co-workers, as well as her supervisor, so the kids were able to hear lots of different perspectives and stories in response to their questions. I loved the questions they asked, and we all learned a lot about what it is like to be a police officer.
Homework for next week: be ready to present unless you and I had a conversation today.
**edit** Just a reminder that Constable McLaren will be joining you tomorrow to answer your amazing questions!
High Jump!! We started high jump today! It dawned on me that students would not have had the opportunity to try out high jump last spring- so we did a thorough introduction, reviewed safety procedures, and tried out our first jumps without and with the pole. SO much fun!
We also had our last review session before the Math test on Friday.
Lastly, the class was introduced to The Royal Game of Ur, a popular pastime in Ancient Mesopotamia. The online version we played in class can be found under WebQuest.
Research for ADST project due demain
vendredi- Math Test, continued prep/filming of Mesopotamian Myth
Another day in the books. Students continue to work on their Mesopotamian Myth Dramatic Recreation, scripts are due tomorrow, hopefully we can move into the rehearsal/ filming component. We also did a hands on bartering (faire du troc) activity today, to simulate how economies work without currency. Lastly, we applied our algebra knowledge and skills to the concept of balancing scales/preserving equality. We also discussed the test outline for Friday’s Test.

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Friday evening I received my first dose the Pfizer vaccine. I am happy to report that I only experienced mild symptoms as a result, a very sore arm and mild nausea on Saturday.
This week will be busy again, more related to Mesopotamia and more Math. I cannot believe this is the last week of April!
A busy end to a busy week! Kudos to the class for all their hard work this week!
Some exciting news- I am off to receive my first dose of the COVID19 vaccine! I am so thankful and grateful for the opportunity, and if you are still waiting for yours, here’s hoping you don’t have to wait much longer!
petite période pour finir le mini-projet d’un élément
Groups continue to create/perfect their invented games in PE, we did a Science Evaluation on elements, compounds and mixtures, and continue to develop and strengthen our ability to solve 2-step equations- I am really happy and excited about the development that I am seeing!
We spent the day immersed in Mesopotamian Religion! Students worked in pairs/trios to research one of the hundreds of Gods from Mesopotamia. They made little informational posters about their God, then, in true Mesopotamian style, they worked with air drying clay to craft little statues of their Gods. As the clay dries, they will look more and more like artifacts!
Don’t forget to send baby photos to Mrs Sales for the yearbook!
This morning the students did a fun science exploration with marshmallows and toothpicks to simulate elements, compounds and mixtures (this was done safely, everyone had their own marshmallows to work with). I really think (hope?) students were able to grasp the difference and connectedness of the concepts after that.
Bande-Dessinée- Une Loi de Hammourabi due lundi (les critères sont sur Teams)
