Room 16: Excited about our Inquiry Projects
April flew by in Room 16! Most of the focus this month has been on the importance of caring for each other and the earth. If you’ve been in the school recently you might have seen our hearts with student messages about using kind words with one another.
Earth Week activities had us busy too. Room 16 and Room 27 went on a community walk in our neighbourhood to pick up garbage. We filled four large garbage bags just from litter on the boulevards on our neighbouring streets. Students planted flowers in the classroom and also in their House Groups. We also planted wheat which we have discovered sprouts fast! Mary from Green Action Centre came to the school for two days and presented information to our students in Room 16 about composting and Vermicomposters. She made it look so easy!
Students have begun to work on their inquiry projects. Many are quite excited to begin researching on topics of their own interest. We hope to have these projects finished by mid- June.
Hopefully this snow is finally behind us and we can enjoy getting outdoors more often in the month of May!
