Structures in Grade 5 Science
Students in Ms. Carroll's grade 5 science class were building structures with spaghetti and marshmallows. The challenge was to be able to support a tissue roll with a cube made of spaghetti. Students quickly learned the value of working together and some principles of physical science as they struggled to make their structures stand up. Check out the pictures:

Exploring the Outdoors
Students in Ms. Hymus's grade 1 class spent some time outside exploring the school grounds during their science class today. As a class they developed the question: "How do changes in the seasons affect living things?" Students went outside to find examples of changes in plant life. They discovered changes in colour, appearance and found seeds and lots of leaves on the ground.

Patterning in Grade 2 and 3
Students in Mr. Vermander's grade 2 and 3 class were working on patterns today. Students worked independently and in teams to create unique patterns using a series of geometric shapes. Some studens were creative and moved beyond the horizontal example to include a vertical element. In one case, the student was able to create a hidden pattern!
