Math and Science

September 20 - 24

Science: Now that we've spent the last couple weeks reviewing key scientific concepts and practicing skills like interpreting data and graphing, it's time to move into our Cells and Systems Unit. We'll begin to look at the characteristics of living things, as well as how different organisms accomplish similar tasks in different ways.

Math:  Students will begin to learn about multiplication involving fractions but looking at fractions of a whole and then moving onto multiplication as repeated addition.

September 13 - 17

Science:
This week, we will be exploring the scientific method. We'll have discussions about Science as a method of thinking, and flow into testable questions, hypotheses, and procedure within experiments. We will also look at data analysis and which graphing methods are appropriate in different scenarios.

Math:  This week we will be solving problems involving number lines and the addition and subtraction of fractions.

September 7 - 10

Science:
This week, we are learning about lab safety and WHMIS, and will be completing a fun "Lab Safety Meme" computer task that will allow students to bring some creativity to what they've learned.

Math:

This week, students will begin their multiplication and division of fractions unit of study.  They will begin with a pre-assessment that will allow teachers to determine where each person is at and adjust teaching accordingly.  We are encouraging students to be practicing their multiplication tables up to 12x12 at home as it will help with fraction work.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL

RT @NickleCBE: Drive by and check out our new trees! Grade 7 Environmental Stewardship class planted 7 trees in front of our school (purchased by EcoClub last year). We are excited to be adding to the biodiversity of our community! #WeAreCBE #getoutside #environmentstewards @NickleParents https://t.co/Lpg5lX8LyH
