Room 23

 

With only two months remaining in the current school year the students in Room 23 will be busy working on a variety of activities. The month of May will have our class responsible for the Pro-Social presentations at the school-wide Monday morning assemblies. We will be teaching the Mulvey School community about bicycle safety. This will not only look at safe cycling practices, but also tips on how to ensure that your bicycle is in good working order.

With the nicer weather now here to stay, it is the perfect time to study plants and soils through our Science lessons.

In Social Studies we will review the Canadian provinces from a First Nations perspective. We will focus on how the physical environment effects how people live, and the lasting contributions that Canada's Aboriginal peoples have made to our Nation.

​Room 23 News

One of the highlights of this past month for our classroom was designing and creating model skateboards. The purpose of this activity was to broaden our understanding of how wheels and axles work during our study of Position and Motion (one of the clusters in the grade two sciences curriculum).

The students made the skateboards using one of their feet as the template, and then personalizing the design of the "deck". They then decided upon whether they would use fixed axles (the wheels spin), or fixed wheels (the axles spin). The students then tested their skateboards, and made modifications to improve the performance of their skateboards.

The final activities involved the students creating posters aimed at "marketing" their skateboards to their classmates, and then presenting to the class why someone would want to purchase their skateboard.

A great time was had during this project that integrated varied subject areas (Mathematics, ELA, Science, Technology and Art), and allowed for a practical application to a specific learning outcome.

This month Room 23 has the pleasure of working with Engaging Fusion artist Janet Carroll. Ms. Carroll is an accomplished local artist who is a master of working with paper in many forms. The class will learn the techniques of marbling, cover design and book making, and utilize the final product to showcase our in-class learning.
