Coders

Our students have been learning how to code in order to create animations for their “Story of the Rock” projects.   This week they used their coding expertise to lead their K2 buddies in a coding session.  They were excellent teachers.  Thank you to Ms. Kathy for the video.

All student rock stories will be available to view on student blogs next week.

New UOI: Our body systems are affected by our choices

Two weeks ago we started our new Unit of Inquiry.

The Central Idea is: Our body systems are affected by our choices.

The lines of inquiry are:

What are the different body systems?

How do the different body systems work?

What affect do our choices have on the different body systems?

Skills:

In this unit the students will be focusing on the skills of asking a question, observing, gathering data, organizing data and analyzing  the data then presenting their findings.  They will practice these skills both in Math lessons and in UOI lessons.

During reading time they will focus on the research skills of identifying important information and summarizing.
