I promised I would share photos but time just slips away. We're into week 6 of grade 2 and it's just flying by.
Our Investigation on Breaking Rocks/Persevering was a huge success. I know the kids had fun and they learned what it means to persevere. We'll continue to work on this during math, Reading, Writing and of course our new unit Boats/Canoes.
Here are some photos to keep you updated as to what we've been doing in class.
|We sorted rocks by 2 attributes.|
|They checked to see which rocks weighed more and then ordered them by their weight.|
|Planned what they would bring to break rocks.|
|And smashing they did.|
|He brought the big guns.|
|Will this work???|
|I've got to think about safety.|
|Hmmm... How am I going to do this?|
|I wouldn't want to be the rock right about now.|
|Lookin' Good while breaking rocks.|
Some of the rock holders we made.
I hope you enjoyed the images. More will come. Up next Boats/Canoes.
Here's our driving question for our Boat/Canoe Project:
Why would a canoe be named as one of Canada's 7 Wonders of Canada?
