This week we continued to focus on creativity. We also explored what it means to be a scientist. We enjoyed a book called “It Might be an Apple” and got creative afterwards exploring our ideas about what else apples “might” be. We worked on observations – looking slowly and carefully at something and drawing exactly what we see. On Thursday we had a great time in the MS Science Lab with Ms. Kate. Continuing our learning about the right to clean water, we collected water samples from a few different places in the school and examined them under a microscope. What did we observe? How do scientists learn? Mr. C, our Technology & Innovation Coach, helped us to start a project making a collection of boxes to use in the classroom.
At the assembly on Thursday we got a sneak peak at this weekend’s Grade 2/3 performance of Artistocats. We also enjoyed a small concert of Christmas music performed by the Grade 5s.
