Weekly Update: April 4

Hello! Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter break. Here’s what’s going on this week:

  • Fine Arts- We’ll be starting our dance unit off with a research project on First Nations dance. Students will be looking at the Traditional, Fancy, Grass, and Jingle dances and presenting to the class later this week.
  • Health- Miss Harvey will be finishing up the Media and Advertising unit on Tuesday and Wednesday.   I’m hoping we can finish the Heaven Shop in the next two weeks. We’ll also be continuing to look at conflict resolution.
  • ELA- Inferring while reading continues.
  • Math- Early this week we’ll be finishing up looking at graphs. We’ll then move on to statistics and probability. I’m hoping we can finish this up by the end of next week (fingers crossed!).
  • Social- We’ll be providing feedback to other classes involved in the Global Teenager Project on their responses to Challenge 1 (you can scroll down to see the blog posts about our responses to the safe home assignment). Challenge 2 involves researching and responding around the right to (good) education, time to play and protection against child labor. We’ll be exploring these concepts and submitting our projects by the end of April. In May, students will be paired with student at another school (in Ontario, Ukraine, or Netherlands) and completing a research project and submitting it to UNICEF.
