In Math today we continued to review quadrilaterals. Tomorrow we will begin learning about transformations that we can perform on the quadrilaterals that we have been learning about!
In Social Studies, we finished our discussion of Confederation. Today students reflected on what we have learned and considered the following questions:
1. How did John A. MacDonald and George-Etienne Cartier contribute as partners of Confederation?
2. How did circumstances surrounding Confederation eventually lead to French and English becoming Canada's two official languages?
3. How did the building of Canada's national railway affect the development of Canada?
4. Why were Aboriginal peoples excluded from the negotiations surrounding Confederation?
We also briefly discussed how the Statute of Westminster (1931) and the patriation of the Constitution (1982) lead us from Confederation to the country that we are today.
In Science today we looked more closely at animal and plant adaptations. For example, did you know that a moose has a very strong, flexible upper lip that it can use to grab plants? How about a muskrats furry feet? Or a dragonfly nymph's lower jaw that is able to shoot out and grab prey, etc.? Check out our slideshow for more!
