Today, in math, we reviewed how to calculate the surface area of a rectangular prism. Students then learned how to find the volume of rectangular prisms. Students who did not complete this in class are asked to complete p. 88 – 89 of the MMS 6 practice book for homework.
In today’s novel study on Tuck Everlasting, we discussed Chapters 9 & 10 as a class. Students have been assigned to complete Chapters 11 & 12 and the responses on p. 37 – 38. This work is due tomorrow.
For our inquiry unit, Where we are in place and time, students continued working on their first line of inquiry ‘First Peoples and their interaction with the environment’ through the lens of causation. They worked on recording their research in jot note form in their graphic organiser. Students will have one more school day to complete their research. They will need their devices all week. On Thursday they will need access to their own POWTOON account.
Students are reminded to bring in their Crawford Lake trip form by tomorrow.
