I had been saving baking activities for the final weeks of school thinking that the Grade 5 students would find them quite challenging. Such was not the case with this week’s “Cookie Challenge”… On to something even more difficult next...
This week we tried a new number activity called “Noggle”. Students had to use their knowledge of the order of operations to reach a target number. The possibilities were many!
This week in a number talk activity, students had to decide which picture did not belong and justify their choice. The yellow cylinder is an obvious one for color, but students found many other reasons why each of those shapes might not belong. Give it a try!
Over the past two weeks of distance learning students have made omelets and pancakes as a practical application of measuring skills. It’s been quite a hit with the students and we plan on more cooking and baking!
Students completed an introductory activity on biodiversity in Seesaw on Tuesday and shared pictures of a diverse range of organisms. One of the strangest was a tardigrade, which you can see in the picture.
