    What's Up with Div 9:

    What a great day today in Div 9!  Everyone got lots of work done, we made up a new game (Hawk's Nest Plinko) and finished the day with some yoga.  The kids are getting excited about their upcoming ancient civilizations projects - I have attached links to the criteria pages below.  Please ask your student what their plan is for their museum exhibit - they may need some support with planning, problem solving and collecting supplies.  Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

  • 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 . . .
