September Unit: When Disaster Strikes

In this unit students have been learning about one of four natural disasters (hurricane, flood, earthquake, or tsunami) through a newspaper they have been assigned to. We work in class discussing the various things people face when faced with a natural disaster. We are also reading a wonderfully tense historical fiction novel called "Safe As Houses" by Eric Walters. This book will have the kids on the edge of their seats as they learn of the fate of three Canadian children as they battle the fury of Hurricane Hazel, which hit Toronto on October 15, 1954. We are about half way through the novel and it has the kids in suspense...what will happen next?

We will soon be starting our final project for this unit, where students will have to create a personal or family emergency preparedness kit. If you would like to try one out, here is the link to one you can do as a family...just in case!

November: Mission Space

In this unit we will be looking at the history and future of Space Exploration, especially in Canada. We will be reading a non-fiction book about the International Space Station (ISS) and learning about what life is like up in space. We will be doing some space sim's (simulations) and learning about acronyms and idioms. This is a very fact filled and hands on unit where the kids will learn how to use facts to create fictional peices of text. We will read a comic book about Galileo's Galaxy and start to think about our final project; a graphic novel on space exploration. Our final project will be worked on in class as a rough draft, then we can take it home to work on and finish it.
