Be A Bridge

This lesson started out in the library with Mrs. Randall, our librarian, reading a story, Be A Bridge by Irene Latham and Charles Waters.

After a short discussion, students thought about what they could do, today, to be a bridge. They recorded their ideas.

Next, students engaged in a STEM activity in which they needed to use the provided materials to build a bridge that would span the river.

People and Environments

We have begun a new social studies unit: People and Environments. While we are learning together and blending the two programs, the grade 4’s are focusing on The Political and Physical Regions of Canada and the grade 3’s are focusing on Living and Working in Ontario.
Over this past week we have been looking at how Canada is divided, first by provinces and territories and then by physical regions.
Students worked on looking critically at pictures and describing the land.
