February Grade 4 Newsletter
We hope that this newsletter finds you all well. February is busy month for our grade 4 students, but they are up for the challenge!!
We continue to learn about the First Nations culture. We will be also learning about the West Coast First Nations Peoples and other Aboriginal peoples in British Columbia. Again, we will examine their ways of life. We will look at food, clothing, shelter, transportation, government and religious beliefs. Students are working on a Passport as they learn about new things.
Students are working on finishing their Menu’s for their own Coast Salish Restaurants.
As part of our science unit on Biomes, the students will be attending the Wet Lab workshop on February 1st, 2019 at the Vancouver Aquarium. The students will learn about animal adaptations, local marine ecosystems, and about the complex issues of marine debris. As a conclusion to our Biomes unit, students will be creating a Biomes Board Game.
Students are continuing learning their times tables and how to apply these skills to different questions. We will be using these skills when we dive into Division soon. Students are encouraged to practice their multiplication. www.multiplication.com offers auto scored tests and free games.
