Earlier this week, architect Jody O’dea spoke with grade 4 about how geometry applies to the real world. He also spoke with us about the design process that architects go through.
K2 also was visited by Jody because they were learning about shelters in their Unit of Inquiry. They thought about ‘what makes a good shelter’, chose an environment, drew designs and floor plans.
In Maths K2 and Grade 4 have both been learning about shapes. After K2 presented their work, Grade 4 then used a computer program called Sketchup to turn a 2D floor plan into a 3D house.
Ms. Cathie and I were very proud of the wonderful skills we observed. Social skills. Thinking Skills and Communication Skills.
