We just began a unit on nutrition. Many years ago, I had the privilege to have a student whose mom worked for the BC Dairy Foundation. She delivered lessons to my class and I learned a great deal working with her.
To kick off this unit, I asked the students a few important questions. These are the skills that the students worked on today while working with a few classmates:
-collaborating with a group
-taking notes (each student was in charge of one question)
-reporting to a larger group
-speaking French with each other
Here’s something fun for the students! Wouldn’t it be cool to visit the VPD’s dog squad facility?
Information can be found here. I will also announce the contest to the class on Monday. Feel free to email your ideas on your side too. It doesn’t look like there is a special form to fill in. The students have been working on writing letters. Writing an email would be a great addition to their skills. If you don’t know where to start when teaching your child how to write an email, this video can come in handy.
Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t forget to say which school you’re from!
