We started our day off finishing our fasteners lesson from yesterday. Students worked to complete their sheet then we went to PE with Miss Yustin
We had a lot of UOI today, we looked at understanding the differences between man-made and natural structures.
We started off with a Prezi looking at what natural and man-made objects are and found out that bridges, buildings, houses, and hotels are man-made. Wood and carrots would be natural. We also talked about how some thing that may seem natural are man made like bricks because somebody has to actually create the shape.
Students worked on a sorting activity to sort the structures into natural and man-made.
After we worked on our worksheets to colour and identify man-man objects and natural objects.
After recess, we looked at how weight on a structure affects its stability. We displayed our scientific question which was: Does adding weight to the top or bottom of a structure affect its stability?
We did our experiment and wrote down observations noting that the weight at the top falls first.
As a clas we came up with our conclusion which was
In conclusion, on the first trial the weight at the top fell first. On the second trial the weight at the top fell first. On the third trial, the weight at the top fell first and knocked over the other structure. We also noticed that the structure with the weight at the top wobbled the most. Therefore when the load is at the top there is less stability.
After, we had our spring fundraiser assembly. For raising 8000 dollars we got to pie two teachers. Mr Foster, and Ms. Samuel had the honour of having a pie to their face.
We had French with Mme Stella.
Students received their ice cream at second snack and when we returned we finished off the day discussing our next summative and started to brainstorm and design our bridges.
