This week, the sky was so hazy and sometimes, haze level was over 200 or 300 somewhere. We couldn’t go outside to play, so we had to stay in the classroom. I didn’t want to stay in the classroom, because I didn’t play outside for a week and I wanted to move around. Everyone were using computers to play games. (I think it is not good thing…) I couldn’t use computer (because everyone were using it a lot) so I used whiteboard to draw and make a maze.
-INTERNATIONAL TRADE GAME
Last week, we did an international trade game in grade 5. We are trying to connect that game with our new central idea (Businesses depend on local and global supply and demand for goods and services).
CHELSEA'S BLOG POST:
“In our international trade game we had to make these shapes that had to be really good. The only hard part was that many groups (Countries) only had scissors or rulers, and some groups only had paper and pencil.
My role was making shapes with my group. We sold these to the traders to get money. The traders are a big part of the game because they would tell us if the shape we made was precise. They bought it only if the shape was right”
View life from the lens of a 10 year old, and it will bring much humour and joy. That sums up my experience with my grade 5 students at ISS.
