Weekly Highlights – Grade 5
In Science students have begun exploring the unit Plant Kingdom, understanding unique characteristics of different plants. The unit was introduced using the provocation strategy- Carousel Brainstorming; wherein the learners were presented with keyword provocation cards to reflect and share – What I already know?
Students learn better when they experience learning; especially through experiments!
To understand the structure and function of different parts of seeds, students hands-on experimented with different seeds; peeling each layer and observing their structure and discussing their function.
For the UOI learning, last week learners have discussed and mind-mapped their thoughts on- What are the essentials that make our World work? Through this activity learners were introduced to the UOI theme- HOW THE WORLD WORKS.
For their Social Science class, learners have begun inquiring into Natural Disasters; during the week they observed various pictures of natural disasters to reflect on their prior knowledge.
Below are few pictures of students in action during the lesson.
