We have been working on creating and using dichotomous keys in science as part of our last unit on the diversity of living things. Students were assigned last week a project where they have to create and classify aliens! After two and a half classes to work in class, we have decided the project will be due Monday, June 5. This is also when they will present their projects. See the pages below.
The second last speech of the year is an entertaining speech. Assigned last week, this presentation will be delivered starting this Thursday, June 1st. Students had time last week in class to work on them. The planning sheet is below!
All Grade 6 students at Ness Middle School will have the opportunity to attend the Aerospace and Aviation in Manitoba Day on Friday, May 26 in the morning. Permission forms were sent home yesterday. Below is a digital copy. Please send back to school as soon as possible. Merci!
As mentioned earlier this week, students have a quiz next Wednesday, May 10 (for both 6F4 and 6F5) about electricity, as our unit is coming to a n end. See below for the answer key to the revision, which we reviewed today with 6F5 and Thursday with 6F4. Students with questions are invited to come ask! Good luck!
Here are the rest of the book reviews. Note: Three are currently missing, as M. Sorokowski has to do a bit of technical magic to get them posted. You’ll find them here very soon. Bravo, 6F5!
We’ve been working hard on Book Reviews in English Language Arts for a few weeks as a writing genre focus. First, we studied examples of book reviews and wrote a list of what we noticed about the reviews’ structure. Next, we wrote reviews in small groups about a picture book. Then, we wrote, revised, edit, and published our own individual reviews. These will be posted on students’ lockers – we really love reading at Ness!
Here’s the first set. More coming tomorrow and the day after!
We are coming to the end of our science unit on electricity, which means it’s time for the design process and a review for our final test! Both documents are below and have been reviewed and worked on in class. As with before, the answer key for the review will be posted on Friday.
The test is Wednesday, May 10. Design process construction will begin tomorrow morning, and we have not yet decided on a due date. (Lightbulbs, batteries, wires, and basic switches are provided.)
