The video conversion process has failed. You might want to submit a simpler video format like mpeg or divx avi.
If the problem persists contact your website administrator. Please check logs for further debugging.

Students took on the task of creating a prototype to purify water.  They learnt that sometimes you need to adjust and change your prototype in order to achieve your goal.  Good work gators!

Math 8

  • Today we learnt about square roots and perfect squares.

  • Students are to memorize the perfect squares from 1 to 144.  It is advisable to know them up to 16 X16.

  • Homework p. 8 Q 4

Math 7

-Today we learnt the difference between <<les décimaux finis>> and <<les décimaux périodique>>.

Math 6

-We reviewed the term equivalent with a game today.  We then took time to review the rules for PRDMAS.  As a class we practiced questions involving PRDMAS.  We continued our work on turning data tables into graphs. 

-Homework is page 31 Q2

Science 7

-Today we reviewed the methods to separate materials.  We revisited our distillation lab.  Students were given a worksheet and asked to identify the main parts of a distillation in real life examples.  We went over the three parts to a Hypothesis (if then because) and identified the key parts of a conclusion (a general statement of what you learnt and use the data to support such statement).  Students need to complete the graph of the data in the solubility worksheet for Thursday’s class.

Science 6

-We went over what a science sketch should look like.  Students drew a science sketch as an example in their notes.  It should be in pencil, words in a column on the right, a ruler should be used and a title.

-We presented the rest of our drawing instructions.  We learnt that word choice is important.  We saw that instructions should be detailed.

Students were challenged to pick one of the United Nations Sustainable Development goals and develop a project to bring us one step closer to accomplishing the goal.   ...

We had a very productive day day working on our Gretna Green Global project.  Students learnt about the United Nations Sustainable Development goals.  Student are developing a project to help us move one step closer to reaching these goals.   Students are in the planning phase and have picked a goal to work towards.  In their journals, they are creating an action plan and working towards making the world a better place.  Some projects are to help our local community while others are working on prototypes and fundraisers to help communities far away.  

We are learning together and realizing that even mistakes take us closer to the solutions.

The day flew by and it was time to go home before we knew it.   Lots of engagement! 

Stay tuned for updates and pictures as we progress along our path to solutions.
