Systems!!!!!

This week we finally completed our projects of the respiratory and circulatory systems.

It was fun learning how to make an animated video with photographs using the open shot video editor.

Take a look at my presentation here - 




On the other hand making a model of the lung was also very interesting.



My presentation can be seen here -



We shared our presentations and learning with our Grade 2 learning buddies.



This week we began to understand what is a debate.

So, why a debate? 
In addition to providing meaningful listening, speaking and writing practice, debate is also a highly effective for developing argumentation skills for persuasive speech and writing.





Stay tuned as we will take up the task of convincing the other team that our system
(the body system we are researching about) is the most important in the body.


In Math, we have been learning about Money. We began by looking at currencies from different countries and then we compared the US dollar to the Indian rupee.






We thought of ways to make the same amount using different combinations of notes and coins.




To make learning more realistic, we role payed ordering and taking orders in a restaurant.
