Measuring objects (using non standard units of measurement):
Moving our inquiry forward with measurement we realised that to measure accurately we need to measure using the same unit of measurement.
We measured the length of objects using ice-cream stick in the class. To measure the length of different parts of the playground we used our body- we hopped, jumped, ran or took baby steps.
Physical, emotional and mental wellbeing: (body, mind and learning)
Going further into our inquiry about how routines support our wellbeing, we had an instructor help us do Yoga. It made us feel calm and happy, we could get some exercise and helped build our muscles, thus taking care of our body and mind.
Our grade 5 buddies read a book along with us, we could read the words or read the pictures and retell the story (3 ways to read a book). We are working together to make a book which is one way of retelling the story! Reflecting back we connected it to our last line of inquiry: things that help me learn.
