Your fourth grader should be able to tell you a thing or two about rocks, minerals, or erosion and weathering. This week, the students engaged in the study of the Earth – Geology. The investigation will continue with a focus on the Earth’s surface, and you can help your child take the learning further by researching the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans. It would be beneficial to even have a look at the distribution of plants, animals, and people.
Inquiring into the impacts of Earth’s changes would hopefully provide opportunities to develop an understanding of and take action towards achieving the UN SDGs #15, #14, #13, and #11.
How do we make our learning impactful while developing and applying crucial skills such as communication, self-management, and research skills? It’s through inquiry and action at I-Act-Time! As defined earlier, I-Act-Time is a privileged time on our timetable to act on an issue to help the world through innovations, ideas, and hands-on explorations. For that to be meaningful and successful, Grade 4C students worked on the different ways we take action.
On Thursday, our K2 buddies visited us and we spent some time getting to know one another even better through interviewing. Fourth graders helped their buddies apply their communication skills through an oral interview process and visual technology skills.
