Before winter break, we wrapped up our unit on Movement by engaging in a scavenger hunt where the students searched the classroom to find the necessary fast facts to answer a list of questions based on their knowledge of simple machines. Fun was had by all! Don’t take my word for it, watch this video.
The students will have an opportunity to reflect, problem-solve and apply this knowledge to a STEM challenge scheduled to take place during our STEM fair in March.
Presently, our Grade 2 students are learning about the six different animal groups; mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds and invertebrates. They work in pairs and in small groups in order to collect and share their information of each of these groups. Once they have foundation to work with, they will be given the opportunity to work on a research project of an animal they are curious about.
