We began the day writing our homework in our agendas and then we began reading a book that would help us understand the importance of helping our planet and ways that we can reduce, reuse, and recycle.
We were then off to eat our pancakes!!!
When we came back, we continued brainstorming ways that we can help our planet and we used those ideas to make posters that will be hung around the school to inform others about the importance of Earth Day and how they can help.
After first recess and lunch we learned about perimeter and area. We learned that perimeter is the distance around a two-dimensional shape. We did an example as a class to understand how we would measure and calculate the perimeter of 2-D shapes. We also discussed that area is the size of a surface. So while perimeter would be when we measure the outside of a 2-D shape, when we measure the area, we are measuring the inside of the 2-D shape. We then practiced measuring the area and perimeter of various 2-D shapes.
We then had French with Mdm. Stella.
After second recess and lunch, Karina presented her cultural doll and her brochure for Portugal.
After, Krina showed us an app that can help us learn more about helping the planet while having fun!! Great action Krina!!
The App is called Koda Quest.
We then worked on an activity where we discussed how we are balanced learners. When we are balanced learners, we ensure to take care of our mind, body, and feelings.
