Week 14 Where We Are in Place and Time Grade 6

Our classes have been enjoying the fall weather!

We are making a timeline with music that we are going to play at the Celebration of Learning during intermission.
The children also have organized the music into a book.
For our "Where We Are in Place and Time" unit, we have quite an extensive book collection for research! 

Recently, we have been curious and inquiring into Science.
 Grades 5 and 6 have been doing case studies with simple machines that include Science and Language Arts.

Our group found the main idea, adjectives that describe forces, and nouns that tell the people who implement forces. 

              We did some problem solving in Mathematics involving finding the height and volume of an aquarium. 
The students used Padlet (an internet storage file program) to collaboratively find similarities between the Inca and Egyptian cultures.


  1. Similarities between the Inca and Egyptians? Never thought of that beyond pyramids. How informational for the children. Seems like they had a lot of fun.

  2. Thank you for such information! I've never thought that Padlet is so useful for students nowadays. Hope that it was interesting for you to make this investigation for creating review of No Need to Study . Also I'm glad that you have a lot of photos in your blog posts.
