My favorite highlights of Grade 5 is Grade 5 camp. I like it because we get to know much more people and learn to be co-operative and confident. I also like the activities there, like kayaking, climbing activities, hiking, and playing teamwork games. I also enjoyed the food that they serve there. Some of the games I played is building the tallest tower with rocks with my partner. Another of my favorite highlights is going ice-skating at Mega box. I get to skate freely and I get to play with my friends on the ice and have fun! It is a very fun experience.
My hopes for Grade 6 is that I will do good in the PYPX. I am excited about Grade 6 camp because the Grade 6 teachers told us that the camp will be fun and exciting. Also, the camp is 4 days and 3 nights and we have to sleep in tents for one night and dorms for two nights.
This will be the last Grade 5 post, so this will be my wrap up for Grade 5. BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In our new unit, How The World Works, we learned about lots of things. We learned about Static electricity, atoms, making observations, electrons, and made our own electromagnet!
We did experiments for static electricity. Such as water bender, Can can go, and bubble trouble. I really enjoyed Can can go because it is really fun and interesting.
We learned about atoms though BrainPop and a book about Electrons.
We made observations with plants. We send love to one plant and send hate to another. We also have a plant that we ignore.
My favorite experiment is the one that we made our own electromagnet. We started with a nail, wire, and a battery. Then, we wrapped the wire around the nail. After that, we connected the ends of the wire to the ends of the battery. Lastly, I used my new electromagnet to attract some paperclips. It worked.
Before this unit, I used to think about how I can make good questions, but now I know how to make great questions using the question matrix. I was able to make great questions for my personal inquiry, the Romans. One of my questions is: “How did the Romans inventions shape their society?”. Also, before this unit, I used to think that the Egyptians were dumb, but now, I realize that they invented a lot of things and they are smart because they invented toothpaste and hieroglyphics.
I will change the group inquiry because I got a topic that I was not very interested in. I want to be able to choose my own topic in the group inquiry so I will enjoy what I research about.
For our How We Express Ourself unit, everyone in G5 have to go into groups and make accessories. We made it over the top and big.
What I learnt while I was working:
being over the top
making it BIG
When we were working, we went though ups and downs. But we are pleased of what we did and it was an unforgettable experience. Our group worked well, we listened to everyone’s idea, it looks like what we wanted it to be, and we made it to the requirements. Sometimes, we might argue but it made us work better together.
I am excited because I get to see everybody else’s designs and get to be on stage.
