Learning about our lines of inquiry through games!We've been playing various interactive games designed to teach about habitat, food webs, and survival. We are gathering ideas for our own games that we plan to take through the design thinking process. Let's play! Sharing Our Passion ProjectsWe shared our stores, research, and art work during "Share Time". We heard a new story called I Will Not Eat Pickles and Jam and learned all about various types of food webs. Share time is a great opportunity to share what interests us.

Kent Ridge Park Field TripThis week we visited Kent Ridge Park to study the connection between living organisms and their habitats. During the visit, we went on a habitat hunt and observed reptiles in the pond; snakes on tree branches; and collected fallen fiber samples from a live Kapok tree! Informational Research at the LibraryThis week we tuned into our new UOI: Sharing The Planet with a visit to the Paterson library. There, we found books relating to animals and their habitats. We then used our books to gather information as we wrote, and researched into our inquiry questions. Game of Eat or Be EatenThis week we focused on the differences between food chains and food webs. We played a game called "Eat or Be Eaten" by building the longest food chain possible. We discussed the patterns we observed after we built our food chains and discovered that it all began with plant life. This week we welcomed our parents during the studentled conference. Thank you for being such wonderful guests as the students proudly shared their learning with you. Reading together with K2 buddies!This week we read together with k2 friends.
