This week we had a lot going on!
We were gathering ideas about what we think we already know about time. We know a lot already! We know there are 24 hours in day, you can tell time by looking at the sun, and you can tell time by using an analog or digital clock - but that's not all! We want to know a lot too! We want to know who invented time and the clock, and if there are other types of clocks we don't know about! We plan on using many ways to research what we want to know about time such as watching videos, interviewing people and maybe doing a little Googling! We also did some investigations with clocks and telling time this week!
We participated in the Big Squat. It was an event on World Toilet Day to raise awareness for the billion people on Earth who do not have clean toilet facilities. We joined some middle school students and grade three for this event.
We painted with water colours this week. The idea was to paint what came to mind when we thought of our central idea for How the World Works: how we live is a result of Earth's journey through space.
Please see Mr. Pinchbeck's blog for the latest information about the Winter Concert, as it is approaching fast!
