Unit of In Inquiry/Mathematics: Measurement (Time)
Can you answer the question?
Did you say Tuesday? Oh Oh!
It will be Wednesday!
We looked at the globe trying to find if it was daytime in Singapore would it be day or night in our home country. We also learnt how the earth spins slowly and as the earth spins and moves aaway from the sun it becomes night.
Charlie was very thoughtful and asked, 'My Smita, if the Earth is spinning, we will all be dizzy!'
Mikhail added, 'How can we stand if it spins? We will all fall!'
We all wondered? Ms Smita said that the Earth moves very slowly and we cannot feel the movement. We don't fall down because the earth has something called gravity which keeps us from falling.
The grade 1's took the initiative of implementing the Earth Day celebration at school. They requested us to not to use electricity from 10:30 - 11:30 am.
We turned off the lights and the aircons. Later we had our lesson outside.
