Grade 6 Learns the Order of Operations

Today during Math Class we practiced the order of operations. After a few BEDMAS hopscotch rounds we reflected in our journals. A great day of learning in 6M!

Check out our Twitter for a video of the Hopscotch Activity!

An Interactive Moon Phase Activity!

Today we learned about the phases of the Moon and how long its cycle takes. We used Oreo cookies to help us recognize that the moon phases are regular and predictable. Ask your child to describe the cycle of its phases (beware, they may ask for cookies!)

Practicing our Journalist Skills!

Today we were very fortunate to have former NHL player Garry Unger visit our class to conduct an interview with one of our Junior Journalists. He spoke to our class briefly and had some very inspirational words about following our dreams and pursuing our passions in life. We are currently in editing mode of our newspaper. Stay tuned! What an exciting day in Grade 6!
