We began the day writing our spelling test and then in our agendas.
We then had physical education with Mr. Slyk.
After we continued our measurement unit. We looked at the difference between measuring using centimeters and metres. We noticed that centimeters are smaller and metres are a bigger measurement; we now know that 100 cm go into 1 metre. After we looked for objects that we thought were less than 1 metre (Book about masks), about 1 metre (width of the door), and more than 1 metre (Daily 5 drawers). We estimated how long we thought these objects were and then we used a metre stick to measure each object to see if we were correct. After we looked at various items and determined if we would use centimetres or metres to measure them (example: we would use metres to measure a flag pole but we would use centimetres to measure the width of a book).
After first recess and lunch, we worked on cutting out an Earth Day Lapbook. We will learn about Earth day and how to reuse, reduce, and recycle during our next unit of inquiry.
We then had French with Mdm. Stella.
After second recess and lunch, we made a brainstorm about various symbols of Canada and then we watched a video to learn about more.
We have been working so hard this week, that we were given fun packages to work on at the end of the day.
