These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things...

We're at that point where the majority of my classes are finishing up their first units and preparing to move on. As such, I wanted to share some of my favourite projects and activities from some of my classes.

Grade 8 Art
Our first project in Art this year was a Famous Artist Research Mobile. Students picked an artist of their choice, created  mobile using their pieces of art, and included artist bio's and references on the back.
These are now laminated and permanent fixtures in my room!

Grade 8 Science
In Science we explored cells and systems and did an interesting comparison between the Cell Theory and the Aboriginal Medicine Wheel. While the Cell Theory breaks down life into microscopic calls, the Medicine Wheel breaks down life into four central components. We created two illustrations to compare these two perspectives.

Grade 10 Math
My Grade 10s have been working on board games as their unit project for Personal Finance. They were asked to create a board game that could be used to review the skills related to personal finance, types of wages, payroll deductions, and income equations. I completely forgot to get pics before some of them got taken home but here are the ones I got today!
