Biome Projects

Before the winter break, we were very busy researching and creating Biome projects. Here are some photos of us sharing our projects with our little buddies. We enjoyed being the "experts".

Picture Book of the Day

When school began Ms. Lirenman began to share a picture book with us each day.  She called it "Picture Book of the Day".  Now that it's the new year we have taken over that job.  Here are some photos of us sharing our chosen books with our classmates.

Multiplication Games

In math, we have been working on our multiplication and division skills and strategies.  One way that we learn is by playing math games.  Here are a few photos of us playing one of those games.

Salmon Eggs Arrived!

Last week we had a visitor who brought us some special things.  OUR SALMON EGGS!  For the next few months we will be their adoptive parents.  We will be checking on them daily. We will also be tracking the temperature of the water to see how they are doing with their development.  Here are some photos from the day our salmon eggs arrived.

Burnaby Village Museum

Last Friday we headed to the Burnaby Village Museum to learn more about winter celebrations in both the past and present.  Despite it being rainy from time to time we had a great time learning so many new things.  Here are a few photos from our day.

Fruit and Vegetable Personal Interest Projects

For the past week or so, we have been working on our first Personal Interest Project (PIP) as we worked alongside Project Chef learning about food education. After watching this video called Austin's Butterfly, we worked hard to draw our drawings as close to the "real item" as we could. We made many drafts and requested and accepted feedback from our classmates.  Our drawings only continued to get better each time. This week we presented our projects to our classmates and provide student feedback to one another.  Here are a few of our finished projects.

Have you ever done a personal interest project?

It's Quesadilla Time!

On Friday we had our fourth and final Project Chef session in the "Project Chef" kitchen.  On our final day, we had many things to do including chopping and preparing vegetables for homemade salsa, preparing cheese, making guacamole, and preparing and cooking quesadillas.  We also learned about healthy foods and that it is so important that we know the ingredients in the foods that we eat.  On Friday's meal, we knew them all!  Here are some photos from our Friday session.

While quesadillas are often seen as snack food, for many of us they were a delicious meal.  Have you ever made them in your home?
