Hello amazing humans of Division 7!
I hope you are all having a good weekend – one of the last before the end of the school year! Here is a very long post with lots of information about the week. My apologies for the delay!
I look forward to a day full of fun tomorrow with our canoeing trip and Loonie Swim!
Our latest “Homework” board looks like this:
- Language Arts
Bloom’s Taxonomy Book Review Ball (Tues, Jun 21)
Survival Guide for Mr. Chu’s Future Students (Fri, Jun 24)
- Social Studies
Big Issues Speeches Done and Ready to Present! (Thurs, Jun 23)
MACC’sterChef (Tues, Jun 21)
In language arts, our Bloom Taxonomy book reviews are being completed and they look SUPER COOL! There have been some really in-depth learning happening and students are really showing a lot of their understanding and engagement with the novel.
In social studies, students are finishing up their “Big Issues” speech and are getting ready to finish off their final copies and have them ready to present beginning on either Wednesday or Thursday.
In art… I have forgotten to post some of the AMAZING artwork that students created using mixed media and collage methods. These stunning creations took a lot of time, precision, but also creativity to make them look as stunning as they are.
In science, students got to take part in some experiential learning about circuits to create their own working circuit to turn on a light. This workshop was brought to us by SCWIST (Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology), and their presenters will be joining us again this coming Tuesday for another workshop on a biological science topic. Mr. Chu can’t wait to see what kind of things they will do! Word on the street is that it has something to do with DNA.
In ADST, students are being reminded to finish off their MACC’sterChef videos after utilizing all 3 mystery boxes on: type of meal, colour, and required nutrients! May the best chef prevail!
