We began the day having French with Mlle. Jessica.
After we continued learning about mass. We used non-standard units (cm cubes) of measurement to compare the mass of four items: glue stick, white board marker, scissors and cuddly. We first made predictions and ordered the objects from what we thought was the lightest object to the heaviest. After we did our mass experiment as a class. We found out that Cuddly was the heaviest and the glue stick was the lightest.
We then had gym.
When we returned, we wrote in our agendas and then began working on our spelling words for the week.
Following first recess and lunch we went on another exciting nature walk!!! Our goal was to create a journey story using found objects that we could wrap around our journey stick.
In many countries, people have developed the idea of creating a journey stick to help them tell the story of their journey to others. It involves tying objects and colours to a stick that represent different experiences, feelings or parts of their journey.
Continuing our love and appreciation for nature, we knew not to rip anything from the ground but only to use found items. Students really enjoyed exploring the wonderful nature around us!!!
When we returned, we made our journey sticks that would tell a story about our nature walk. Check them out!!!!
Following second recess and lunch we continued working on our spelling and then began reading chapter 17 of The Borrowers.
At the end of the day many of us had incredible action to share with the class!!
