Creatures that live in the soil

The Grade 5’s spent a busy and productive 3 days during their Integrated Learning Task this week. Working in pairs, they presented the research they had done last week, firstly as a visual poster and secondly in the form of an oral presentation.img_6117img_6109Summarising information and putting it into their own words, is a skill they are still developing. They were encouraged to avoid plagiarism and to acknowledge their sources. Some very attractive and interesting posters were produced, while sticking to the deadlines set.                                                                                                                              img_6115Well done Grade 5’s!

Presenting our Creatures

We hope that you all enjoyed our presentation of the prairie dog.

Our Grade 5 children were supposedly approached by the SABC to create and present a nature documentary for television on their soil creatures.  They used this opportunity to present the information on their soil creature posters to the rest of the class in an interesting and creative way.  Everyone remained fully engaged in what was being said throughout all of the presentations.  They really loved hearing about all the different animals and had so much fun watching their friends pretend to be TV presenters.

The Sisters in Science taught us all about the hedgehog – apparently they have about 500 fleas each.
