2: Science: Inquiry project

Once I have given the go ahead and approved your question, you can now start researching some ideas for your slideshow presentation. Start by writing your question in the question box. Then look over the example I have attached. 

You can use Google to search and research your question. You may have to go into some websites to find the information you are looking for. Use the table in your Human Body Inquiry to help organise your notes. Today start by researching your topic, and trying to complete 3-4 boxes.

 

3: Bonus: Scattegories

On Friday we will be going over the answers as a class during our group meeting.

Using the list, you will come up with an answer that’s first letter must start with the letter assigned to it. An example is if you were using the letter C. Some questions are: 1. Ice cream flavour. 2. Sports Team Name. 3. School supply, ect. Your answers would be 1. Chocolate. 2. Calgary flames. 3. Calculator. Simple game, but the trick is, if you have the same exact answer as someone else, neither of you get the point for your word. Unique answers only.

Today’s letter for the first game is W. When you are finished, you must Turn In your answers, so you will not be able to edit them during the game on Friday.

Wednesday

Group meeting at 1pm

1: SS Country Powerpoint

You will be continuing to work on your slide show presentation about the country that you researched.  Work on completing 2 more slides about your country.

 

2: Science: Inquiry project

The human body is a miraculous thing. Each body has something distinct and unique about it. Have you ever wondered how something works in your body? Such as how does hair grow? Or how does vision or hearing work? Maybe you have wondered why something happens. Why do people get freckles? Why are some people tall and some short?

Well now is your chance to find out! You are going to come up with a question about the human body. Something that you are interested in finding out. You will then research and make a google slides presentation about your topic for the class.

I have attached a worksheet to help you organize your thoughts. Write down 2 to 3 wonders you may have about the human body, and I will message you about which would work best. Today I want you to think about the human body, and think about an interesting aspect of it you want to learn about. You will write your questions in the boxes. I will read over your question and let you know which is good for this project.

Spring is here, a time of the year where some families decide to go out for a picnic in the park or their backyard. You are a bug, decide which bug you want to be. You will write a story about the bugs point of view, and how you (the bug) will interact with this family picnic. Have some fun with this writing activity, and make it entertaining. Don’t forget to add lots of descriptive details using your bug senses!

Thursday

1: Powerpoint Inquiry

I have sent a message through MS Teams to help students narrow down their project ideas. Once you have figured out what you want to work on, you will start creating a Google Slides about your progress. Today you will start by opening up the Slides assignment, and adding 2 slides. The first slide you will title “I have chosen to learn about ___________” with a picture to go with it. For your second slide, you will have the title ‘How I will learn about _______”, with some explanation about how you will learn your new skill. You may have to research some ways you can learn this skill. This could include some websites you may use, possibly Youtube videos you may follow, or even saying that your parents plan to help. You can edit this slide as you learn, adding more resources you find that help you learn your new skill.

2: Math Fractions around the house

Last day we learned about fractions, and how they are pieces of a whole thing. My favourite example is pieces of a pizza, if you cut a 1 whole pizza into 8 slices, your pizza is now out of 8. If you eat 3, you have eaten ⅜ of your pizza.

Today you are going to go on a scavenger hunt around your house. Your mission is to try and find 3 objects that can show fractions. Some examples are toys (I have 8 toys total, 3 are cars, 5 are lego blocks. ⅜ cars, ⅝ lego), a loaf of bread (1 whole bread is cut into 16 slices, we have eaten 4 slices, we ate 4/16, there is 12/16 left), or ice cube tray (1 whole ice cube tray has 12 spaces for ice, we have used 7 ice cubes so far, 7/12, and there is 5/12 left).

When you finish, you can either write about what you found, with your fraction, or take a picture and upload it to the google document. Do not forget to tell us your fraction.

Wednesday

1: Powerpoint Inquiry

With all this extra time, it is a perfect opportunity to start learning a new life skill. Something that will help you as an adult. Today you will be taking a survey to help narrow down what type of life skill you want to learn about or improve on. We will eventually be creating a Google Slides presentation about what life skill we want to learn, and what steps we have taken to start improving ourselves.

2: Science Human Body

We are going to learn about the human body, today’s lesson is short, you will learn about the levels of organization within the human body. There are 4 levels, which this video explains well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRFykdf4kDc

When you finish the video, work on the top part of the worksheet assigned in Google Classroom. You may have to rewatch the video to get your answers. Type your answers on the underlined areas.

3: Language Arts

I have commented on your journals so far. Use my comments and questions to edit and add more information into your original paragraph.

Tuesday

Video Conference 10am for those signed up and completed the consent form

1: Math Fractions folding paper

Watch the video Fractions are Parts, it described fractions very well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CA9XLJpQp3c

I have also created a picture to show how fractions work. Look over Fractions intro 1. It is a good review to show fractions are just pieces of a whole thing. 

Fraction intro 2 is an activity you can do at home with a piece of paper. Follow the steps, try your own.

Optional: Fraction squares is a google doc you can choose to use, to try and make a fraction the same as your home paper example.

 

2: LA Journal

You will be writing a weekly journal, one entry per week, about what is going in with your life. You can write about your experiences over the last week, any feelings you want to discuss, something you found while discovering, how you are keeping busy.

Remember to use your paragraph format for each topic. Topic sentence what your paragraph will be about, 3 to 5 sentences containing information about your topic, and a concluding sentence ending your paragraph. If you have more to write, go for it.

Example

Writing a paragraph can be really easy if you follow the steps. First you should state what your paragraph will be about in a topic sentence. It is good to indent your first sentence, to show a separation from other paragraphs you may write. After you have your topic sentence, you should back up your topic with examples, usually in 3 to 5 of them, each having their own sentence. Once you have explained your topic in detail, end your paragraph with a concluding sentence. That is how you write a paragraph.

I haven’t heard from you for a month, so let me know what you ave been doing. You should have at least 2 to 3 topics to talk bout.

Bonus Activity: Duo lingo French

Hello,

Many of you may be wondering what we might be learning about these next couple of weeks. Here is an overview of what each subject will probably cover. We start on April 14th.

For Language Arts, we will continue working on our paragraph writing through journals and writing prompts. We will eventually start looking into comics, and create our own comic online.

For Math, we will be working on Fractions, Decimals, and possibly Geometry if we have time. This will be covered through Khan academy, with printable worksheets if requested.

For Science, we will be investigating the human body, and the different organ systems that make our body work. This will be covered mostly through online videos and worksheets through Google Classroom. There will also be a “I wonder” inquiry project at the end.

For Social Studies, we will compare Canada with other countries from around the world. We may eventually start creating our own personal country, with laws, cities, climate, resources, ect.

For Life Skills, we will start with creating a power point about what life skill we wants to either start, or improve, with all of our extra time at home. We will also learn about coding, and have a couple of small inquiry projects later on.

Each day there will be 1 or 2 activities to do. If at anytime you are feeling overwhelmed, take a break, there is no rush. If you need assistance, message my through MS Teams, Google Classroom, or email.

Each Friday I will post a schedule of the following week, and each day I will edit the post, describing that days activities and lessons.
