Grade 3/4 – Angles

Grade 3/4 – Angles

Students at the 3/4 level have been working on lines and angles. As well as discussing, estimating and measuring acute, obtuse and right angles we also looked at how they are used in the real world. We made paper airplanes discussing each fold as we formed a range of right angles. We then tested our planes.

Grade 3/4 – Selecting Just Right Books

Grade 3/4 – Selecting Just Right Books

The beginning of the year is the perfect time to discuss how to select a “Just Right” book. These books can then be used for independent reading. In order to effectively do this, students need to be able to describe the features of a book that is too hard for them as well as a book that is too easy. Once they have done this they are able to successfully identify the features of a “Just Right” book. 3/4W created this easy to use table that is displayed in class. It can be viewed by clicking here.

Grade 3/4 – Solid, Liquid or Gas?

Grade 3/4 – Solid, Liquid or Gas?

Students have begun to discuss and describe the observable properties of solids, liquids and gases. This activity is part of the Matter Matters topic. Students asked themselves questions such as:

– Does this object have a fixed shape?
– Does if flow?
– Can it be poured?

During the term students will consider how matter usually exists in one of three states (solid, liquid or gas). They will discover the properties of each and understand the importance of heat.
