We have been studying a science unit on position and motion. As part of this learning, students were challenged to design and build some form of transportation for Rupert. We had a great time testing them out!

TIA


This time for The Integrated Arts we are learning about aboriginal art. Our first session included a gallery walk of all kinds of aboriginal art and artifacts that students got to touch and interact with. This time, we learned about the traditional medicine wheel, and made one out of paper.

Solids, liquids, and gasses: boats

As part of our study of solids, liquids, and gasses, we explored things that float and sink. Students were then challenged to create a plan to build something that would float, would be able to hold a small item, and would be made out of at least 3 materials. Once the plan was finished, they got right to building their creations!

A few examples of completed plans and the boats:
We had to test them! Here are some of our boats in action:

Day at the museum!

All of the Grade 2 students enjoyed a very busy day of learning and fun at the Manitoba Museum!We had a session learning about the history of our Winnipeg community and another about  solids, liquids, and gasses. We also had a chance to explore both the main and science galleries.
