Summing up the unit

Over the past week, we have been working on organizing a math quiz for Grades 4 and 5 as our summative task to showcase our understanding of the central idea - In a workplace people share responsibility towards a common purpose.
We began with brainstorming on what were the things that would be required to be done to put the quiz together. We then moved on to making a timetable for ourselves to plan how we would go along doing the same. We discussed and distributed jobs among ourselves and decided who would be responsible for what.
We did all that was required to put together the quiz starting from writing a permission letter to Ms. Pramila, asking her permission to host the quiz to writing an email to Ms. Ramanpreet with the list of resources. We then moved on to research and putting together the questions that we would ask at the quiz. We finally ended our preparations with sending out invites to all the teachers and students of Grade 4 & 5 to participate in the quiz.

Stay tuned for ...........

In Math, we worked on fractions and their decimal representation. During fun Math, we explored 3 D shapes, fractions, word problems and calculations using the four operations.

We had rounds of Dumcharades where we had to enact action words and our friends had to guess them.

We read books and then reflected on the same answering the Yes and NO questions and sorting the question cards accordingly.
