The Great Mail Race

We bet you are wondering what a mail race is!  We wanted to find out more about other Grade 4 students and the land across Canada so we  decided to randomly send letters to schools all over the country.  From the Yukon, to Nunavut, to Newfoundland and Labrador our letters hope to land in the hands of unknown Canadian students!  First we researched elementary schools in each province and territory and then we began our letter writing.  In the end the first student who receives a letter back will win the race!  We can’t wait to see what happens!

We used Google Maps to search for schools in each province and territory in Canada.

Then we wrote a friendly letter to each of the schools.

Inside our letters we included information about our school, the community we live in, a class photo, and a page of questions that we hope the Grade 4 classes will respond to.

We mailed our letters at a nearby mailbox. It was quite a cold November day!

Although Canada Post is on rotating strikes we are hopeful that our letters will arrive safely and that they will be a wonderful surprise to the classes who receive them!

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day activities give us time to consider many important questions about life and the choices people make.

We read a story called “Faithful Elephants”.  We learned that war not only destroys the lives of humans but also those of animals.  Do you agree with what happened to the zoo animals?

The End of WW1

We worked with our Grade 1 Buddies to create a slideshow “Peace Is”.  It reminds us of the importance of peace and all the ways we can find peace everyday.

Making Inferences!

“Someone please play with me!”

They say a picture is worth a thousand words! What do you think might have happened just before this photo was taken?

Raising Monarchs

A week ago this guy was only a few millimeters long. The larvae grow so quickly!

Watching the monarch emerge from the chrysalis stage.

Releasing our first monarch!

It is an honour to have a moment to feel the monarch’s feet on our fingers!

One of our Monarchs emerged while we were working in our butterfly garden!
