In class we are focussing on the Lunar System. The Lunar System is made up of the Sun, Moon and Earth. We had to choose one claim out of three claims, and I chose ‘ The Moon circles the Earth, while the Sun circles them both’ because I think that the Moon and the Sun has to meet eventually, so that makes night, and when they are seperate, that means that one side of the Earth has light, and the other side of the world is dark.
Above I took a picture of my work. It shows what I think that the Lunar System is. It shows how the Moon circles around the Earth, and the Sun circles around both of them. The Lunar system is a very interesting thing, and I can’t wait to find out if I’m wrong or right.
What claim did you take and why?
A haiku poem is a very common poem. You have to have 3 lines in a haiku poem. Also, on the first line, you have to have 5 syllables. On the second line, you have to have 7 syllables. Finally, on the last line, you have to have 5 syllables again. The words don’t have to rhyme if you don’t want them to. Haiku is a Japanese word.
Here are my poems.
All the flowers bloom
It’s time to get hay fever
Listen to the birds
Feel the fire burn
Smell the dirty air of smoke
Breathe for all your life
Beautiful colours on them
Stars light up our night
Listen to them roar
Claws on all their mighty paws
The animal king
Keep all your secrets
Makes you happy, smile and laugh
My best friend for life
What did you learn today?
My transformation work
Click here to watch my video.
In class we have focused on transformation. I have learnt that flip means reflect, slide means translate and turn means rotate. We did a worksheet on transformation and we had to show different ways to translate, rotate and reflect.
We also made a video on what transformation means. My video is above.
What is your favourite one, translate, reflect or rotate?
We are all working as a team.
We are having so much fun doing the activities.
On Wednesday the grade fives went to Montmorency Secondry College. They ran a lot of fun activities about leadership. My favourite activities were the Jewel Thief, because there was a lot of running and we ran through that activity, the Flying Blinds, because there was a lot of teamwork, and my team had great strategies. Also the MnM Race, because that was a lot of fun.
I really want to be a leader next year, and Montmorency taught me a lot, like cooperation, strategy, initiative, persistence and lots more! I had a fantastic day!
What was your highlight of the day and why?
