Special Family Recipes

To celebrate what is special about each of us and our families, we brought in a recipe that has created good memories in our family. Each of us thought about why this recipe is special and shared when we usually enjoy it. We put our collection together in a book, check it out! {This view has slightly changed the book.

Grade 1 | Inquiry | Objects and Materials

Grade 1 and I explored objects and materials. The kids had a great time building and creating as they explored. They designed marble runs as their final creation which was amazing to see! They used recycled materials to develop a trail for the marble to take. They also had to revise their plans as they went and learned what worked and what didn’t. They are a wonderful bunch of inventors!

This ebook summarizes our project:

We did bleeding heart art. First we drew overlapping hearts and then used watercolour to paint them. The colours from each heart bled into the other hearts beside it. ❤️#lifeinroom4 #mrsdentscarcello
