Looking at vibrations
During our technology integration time with Ms Michelle, we learned how to make sounds through vibrations. The students were paired up and given a rubber band. Then they had to take a video of the rubber band making the vibration and sound. Then we took the video and moved it into an iMovie to slow down the video. The videos will be on the student’s blog very soon!
Mini Field Trip to the G9/10 String Orchestra
Continuing on with our inquiry into how light and sound affect our lives, we visited the Grade 9/10 string orchestra. The class first played an original piece of music which they are practising for an up-coming concert, and then the older students showed 1D how their instruments work. Some children even had a go at playing the instrument.
A message from Operation Smile
We would like to inform you that, from January 8 to February 8 of 2018, Operation Smile will be running a toy drive. There will be a large bucket placed outside the nurse’s office, and we would greatly appreciate it if you could encourage the students to donate toys they no longer want or need, to be placed in the bucket. All of these toys will be given to children awaiting mouth surgery in hospital, to make the waiting process more bearable.
Many thanks to Haru’s mum, BK, who was our mystery reader this week. We very much enjoyed the story and learning a few new words in Korean.
Light and Sound Boxes
As a culmination to our unit on light and sound, the children are working collaboratively to make a space which incorporates natural and man-made light and sound sources. Here is the process so far:
