This week the Grade 3 students began a new IPC unit: Shake it!
In this unit we will be exploring solids, liquids, and gases and conducting a variety of interesting (and sometimes messy) experiments including churning milk into butter! Here are few of the big questions we seek to answer in our unit:
We began our new unit with a pre-assessment activity. We provided each student with a set of images of different kinds of food and drink (solids and liquids) and asked them to study their images and create categories. Some categories the students created were: dairy/non-dairy, healthy/not healthy, natural/altered by humans. It was interesting to see the different ways everyone organise their images.
