Grade 1 Habitat Fun!

The students in Grade 1 enjoyed learning about animals and their habitats this term. We finished our unit with an awesome Habitats Fair this week. The students created habitat dioramas in small groups and then presented them to their schoolmates from other grades in the Primary School. The students taught their peers about the rainforest, grassland, wetland, forest, arctic, desert, and ocean habitats. It was a wonderful learning and sharing experience!

ELC 1 Animal Unit

This term we learnt about the animal groups and answered many questions:
What are the different animal groups?
What are some characteristics of each of these groups?
How are they different or the same?
There was a lot of new vocabulary to be learnt and many more questions that came up as a result of their learning. Some of the new questions were:
How do the animals protect themselves?
What is special about them and their habitat?
As a result, they researched an animal that they wanted to learn more about. They spent some time coming up with more questions and finding out the answers at home and at school. Then they made posters about the animals that they had picked. Finally, they presented their findings in front of their friends.

Making edible rocks

The grade three and the ELC 2 classes are currently learning about Rocks and Minerals in Science class. They have learnt that land is made out of rocks and soil and that rocks are solid things made out of one or more minerals. We concentrated on three main types of rocks and how they are formed. A Sedimentary rock is formed from particles of sand, shells, pebbles, and other pieces of material. A Metamorphic rock is formed under the surface of the earth from the change that takes place because of intense heat and pressure. It takes millions of years for it to be formed. Igneous rocks form when magma cools and hardens. Magma is the molten rock deep within the earth (lava).

We decided to make our own edible rocks in the lab that would represent the Sedimentary rocks (Granite, Basalt and Pumic), Metamorphic rocks (Red marble, Schrist and white and black marble) and also the Igneous rocks (Sandstone, Limestone and Chalk).
