It's been a busy week back. A very warm welcome to new students, John, Liam, Linda and Christo in Grade 1.1 . We got to know them better during our icebreaker activity and learned new things about old friends :)
How could we resist dramatizing Gerald and Piggy after reading on of our favourite authors, Mo Willems? The title was Waiting Is Not Easy!
The actors are Joshua and Christo.
UNIT: HOW WE ORGANISE OURSELVES.
It's been a good start for our unit of inquiry this week
The Central Idea is : FOOD GOES THROUGH A JOURNEY TO GET TO OUR PLATES.
Lines of Inquiry:
After a quick pre-assessment, we tuned into our unit by finding out the different sources of milk through discussions and brainstorming sessions.
Student Action already swung in with Yuriko, Mackenzie and Olympia researching and sharing their knowledge.
Yuriko researched and shared her findings about vegetable sources of milk.
Mackenzie talked about her first-hand experience with wheat harvesting in Newzealand.
Olympia shared a slide show on her experience in France and explained the journey of milk from the farm to our tables.
Earlier this week, we located and sorted information books and picture books related to our unit. Many of us have already decided to independently research how some of our favourite foods get to our tables.
