Our grade 1/2 class has had several visits to the leisure facilities in Spruce Grove. We have been swimming and skating, we have done gymnastics and had some dry land activities such as taekwon-do.
Earlier this week we made “eggs in a baggy” to learn about how temperature can affect certain materials. We broke 2 eggs into a sturdy freezer quality bag, then sealed the bag. The eggs came out of the shells as a liquid. We mushed them around with our fingers on the outside of the ziploc bag. Once they were well mixed we placed them in a big pot of boiling water. After a few minutes, the liquid started to change, it turned to a lighter color and started to become more solid. Once the egg mixture in the baggy became fully solid, we carefully removed it from the hot water and slipped it onto a plate. We added shredded cheese and voila… mess free omelets!
What a delicious way to start our day!
Halloween is just around the corner, its almost time to choose the perfect pumpkin and create a jack-o-lantern!
I used Google Drawings to create these pumpkins.
I challenge to create some silly or scary pumpkins.
For the rest of the week, our students will be relocated to Seba Beach School while firefighters work tirelessly to get the flames under control. Many residents in the area have been evacuated and those that are at home are finding the air around their homes smoky, dark and smelly!
A grass fire started yesterday near our school. Many homes were evacuated yesterday. People were told they could return to their homes last night and as of yet no homes have been damaged. The fire is still burning and there is lots of smoke hanging in the air. The inside of the school is very smokey. When we got to school, we were told that we were being evacuated to Wabamun School, about 15 minutes down the highway to the west. All of the bus-students stayed on their buses and other students were loaded onto random buses. Once all students were accounted for we traveled to Wabamun. The school was very welcoming and our classes were split up around the school. Our class worked on some blog posts this morning, telling stories about the evacuation. I think later today we will walk down to the water front and enjoy the lovely weather. What an adventure!
The grade 2 class has been working on, not only creating interesting blog posts but leaving great comments on the blogs of others. Below you will find a list of items to consider before posting a comment on someone’s blog.
