UN Day, Our Research Project, & More…

23 Sep

We have had a busy week! Here are some photos from today’s United Nations Day celebrations. Here are some videos from Mr. Hoover from students around the world sharing their views on peace.

Grade 6 social studies invited Mr. Jet to our classroom this week for a talk on how we find information for our project. What is information? Where do we find it? How do we know it’s good information? He shared some tips on how we can evaluate whether a source is good or not (i.e. Is the person who write that book an expert?) and also shared the World Book Online website, which we will use as one of our resources when doing our research project. Students also finished their first footstep for Out of Eden Learn. You have introduced yourself to our walking party and you are commenting and asking questions to learn more about the other students around the world who are in our walking party. Finally, what is a compelling question? That was also reviewed this week. Have a great weekend!
