Grade 6 students carried out their first scientific investigation this week. They were looking at different factors that could affect the time taken for a pendulum to complete a full cycle. Some students chose to test the mass of the bob, some chose the length of the pendulum while some chose to test the initial position from where the pendulum is released.
Mme. Verbert’s Dual Language Grade 5 class did a fun exercise yesterday to learn about energy.
Our grade 6 students had their first pre-lab activity yesterday and they were absolutely delighted. It was an opportunity for them to learn how to use some of the equipment in the lab to measure quantitative data. There were multiple stations set up. They used a triple beam balance and a digital balance to measure the mass of solids. They also learned to how to use a graduated cylinder to measure the volume of liquids. They were not using any hazardous chemicals, nevertheless, it did not stop them from having their lab coats and goggles on.
Grade 5 concluded their first unit of inquiry on ‘How We Express Ourselves – Art Communicates About the Time in Which It Was Created.‘
They created their own pieces of art to show the time they are living in. Technology and pollution are the most popular themes and concerns that can be seen through the students’ works of art. Politics has also been addressed. Maybe there is a message for leaders of the world to pick up here!
Their work will be exhibited outside the 5th-grade classrooms for the next couple of weeks.
