    What's Up with Div 9:

    Your kids are AMAZING!  They were so helpful and engaging today at Anawim House.  Their good work sure was appreciated and we all had a wonderful lunch.  Thank you again to the parents who volunteered to drive - including my mom!

    Tomorrow morning we will be walking/rollerblading/skateboarding/scootering/biking into Sidney to hang out at the new skatepark.  Please make sure that if you have wheels - you also have a helmet.  We will stop by DQ on the way back to school for ice cream cones (my treat!).  If you want something else, please bring your own money.

    Congratulations to those on Team Awesome already:  Talia, Jackson, Kate, Nathon, Chris, Rowan K, Evelyn, Quin, Kenzie, Skye, Sumiko, Sophie, Gabby, Li Na, Rowan G, and Danielle.  If you are finishing up your Div 9 Memory page or your Thank You card, please bring them tomorrow.

  • AWESOME SCIENCE

    CHEMISTRY: What we're working on . . .

    Properties of Matter:

    Today we explored what happens to the temperature as ice (solid) changes to water (liquid), and as water (liquid) changes to water vapour (gas).  To follow up, your assignment is to:

    • watch the BrainPop on "States of Matter" AND "Matter Changing State"
    • take the Review Quiz and email your results to your teacher (Mrs. Jones or Ms. Carruthers)

    Adopt-an-Element:

    Now that you have done some research about your chosen element, you will be creating a poster advertising its importance to the world.  Your poster may be hand-drawn or created on the computer.  The criteria page for this assignment has been shared to your Google Drive.

    Use the link below to watch the BrainPops on 

    • Atoms
    • Periodic Table of Elements

    Play the Element game to learn some of the periodic table

    Check out the links on the KidZone of the Science Spot for more information about elements

    The Periodic Table Videos are awesome!  Check them out for some experiments that I can't do in class . . .
