We began the day reflected on our first unit of inquiry on electricity. We chose an activity that we worked our hardest on, our best work, and something that we can improve on.
Then we worked on our electric cars and reflecting on the engineering design process.
Next, we had French.
After first recess and lunch, we reviewed how and why hot air balloons fly and the particle theory of matter. Then we began our inquiry into flight!!! We did various experiments today to explore how high pressure air (low speed) and low pressure (high speed) air are used create lift! We will apply todays learning to understand why planes fly. We were challenged to research about Bernoulli’s principle and to problem solve how our experiments relate to Bernoulli’s principle.
Following second recess and lunch we practiced our dance for the Christmas concert. I am very proud of the students who are taking ownership over our performance and are practicing at home and demonstrating their leaning to the class!
Then we had a house game!!!
Happy Halloween/Harvest day!!
