Last week we encountered a big problem in our class. We were wasting a lot of food during lunch time. We discussed possible solutions and some children suggested that we use our food scraps to make compost. Our compost bin will be up and running next week. We are in the process of doing a rotting experiment. At home, ask your child to tell you about it.
We are also thinking about ways to look after our planet. Here is what we’ve come up so far.
We had lots of fun celebrating Moon Festival on Thursday. Here is a short movie trailer. Enjoy!
As a provocation for our ‘Structures’ unit, we visited the Middle School science department on Wednesday to see the five ducklings that hatched a couple of weeks ago. Today we got to bring them back to our classroom, but we quickly realized that they needed more space. The children used their recess time to try and find a good spot to build a structure for the ducklings. K2B worked together to make a safe and comfortable space for the ducklings for the afternoon. Just look at the amazing structure they made. The ducklings were so happy!!
A big thank you to Sung Ah’s mom and Quang Tung’s mom for visiting our class this week. If you still want to sign up to do Family Show and Tell, please let me know!
