Earth Project

On Thursday everyone was scared but excited because we were showing off our Science projects. We all worked very hard on the projects showing the layers of the earth. We all had 2 weeks to work on the project.

Here are some photos we have to show off our models to you.

As you can see, all of them are creative and have been worked hard on. As we said before, all of us had great fun with creating these projects and we hope that we have another project/assignment just like it soon.

Amazing Earth!

There was such a sense of energy and life in the classroom this morning as students brought in and showed off their Earth Projects to their peers. It was amazing to see so many different interpretations of the requirement to create a 2D or 3D Earth.

We will have a chance tomorrow for each student to point out their features and talk about the work that went into creating these masterpieces. I look forward to reading their explanations and giving feedback.

Here are the students who have brought in their assignments so far:

It's a disaster!

Term 4 is fast becoming a disaster term!!! Well, during Science and Geography anyway.

During Science this term, Stage 3 will be exploring plate tectonics and the devastating results of this process. I will be putting some information on the Science tab of this blog to help with the students investigations. Our first Homework task is also on this tab.

During Geography, we will be looking at bush fires and how they shape our environment and how we interact with our environment. More information about Geography will be added to the Geography tab as it becomes more relevant.

Our first Geography lesson sparked the students' interest as we learned about the Fire Triangle and the three things a fire needs to continue combustion.

I ran a few simple experiments in front of the class and we had a big discussion on what a fire needs to continue. Each student wrote a few observations from the experiment as well as what they learned from watching a short documentary on the 2009 Victorian fires.
