English and Social Studies
Students continued their AFC research. In English, they have focused on writing their letters. In Social Studies, they worked on tried solutions and outcome. Note cards are due on May 11. Letters are due on May 10/11.
This week, students started the science component of AFC. In DAY 1, students designed a way to filter dirty water (from the previous activity) and completed their design plan. DAY 2 was about constructing and testing their filter.
Next week, they will design an experiment based on their own AFC research question.
Gr. 8 worked on their performance task. Next week will be about statistics and probability to help them with their AFC research.
