This week we will be starting two separate projects that may involve group work. In Social studies students will be working in a group of 4 - 5 to research, collect and present information about a specific physical region in Canada. The links to the information for this work can all be found on our classroom blog on the Social page underneath The Canadian Regions. At the end of this project all students will be asked to self reflect on their group work skills, as well as to confidentially peer assess their group members using the following group work rubric.
In addition, our final weather project relates to how humans have an impact on weather. This is an individual project, or can be completed with one other partner.
We have talked extensively at school about being positive, contributing members during group work, and I'm so proud to see some young leaders developing in the classroom that work well with everyone and make an effort to stay focused and positive. A short conversation at home to reaffirm these ideas would be greatly appreciated to help everyone to succeed!
Finally - Reading records will be handed out tomorrow and due back next week. This week's homework assignment is Math Weekly #6 and is due on Friday as always.
Have a great week everyone!
