Our new unit of inquiry into WHO WE ARE is an exciting exploration of the physical, emotional and social changes we undergo in grade 5, with a special focus on what we eat and a healthy diet.
Our lines of inquiry are:
We did an activity called Chalk Talk where students could put their views on the topics or comment on some one else' views.
Some of the student comments were: I disagree because while we always see boys playing soccer, we may not see them reading( for example me), so boys are as good at reading.
I agree, because boys are better at sports because they play more sports
In grade 5 we have become better at research since the Exhibition and are more knowledgable.
I agree that the environment affects the way you feel because I know little English so its difficult to make friends.
Growing up is NOT easy because you have to face new challenges such as getting a job
CHALK TALK BELOW:
FOOD GROUPS. Today we looked at the five food groups: Grains, Proteins, Vegetables, Fruits and Dairy. We will apply the information we gathered to assess our meals. We start with dinner tonight. Students are to take a photograph of their dinner and then assess whether it is balanced or not.
