Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Message from Form 1G

Unknown-1This week’s theme is “digging in.” After each being assigned a different mineral, the boys collected information about how it’s used in everyday life. From there, the class created a poster using Haiku Deck on the iPads, describing the way their mineral is used. We’ve begun our inquiry into how we get the different rocks and minerals from the Earth. The class will work through mining workbooks to compare the difference between surface and underground mines. Looking with a keen eye, we’ll explore the benefits and drawbacks of each kind of mine with special attention to the ecological impacts. Our culminating activity will be to decide which mine is the best and why.

In math, we continue chapter 3, paying close attention to times to the half hour, adding and subtracting using a number line and creating and extending patterns. Come check out our new math wall in the 1G classroom, complete with pie charts and bar graphs the boys created after tallying and organizing the rocks in the classroom.

Thank you to everyone who helped make Halloween a screaming success. The boys and I are grateful for the hard work.
