This morning we continued our Inquiry around measurement
Who Sank the Boat
and discussed which animal might be the heaviest and lightest and why…..
Kaisha – Donkey because it seems big
Meklet – Cow because it looks heavy
Ella – I think the donkey because it’s the tallest
Blake – probably the mouse because the mouse made it sink.
We talked about weight and came up with 2 important words we could use to describe how much sometime weighs….
HEAVY and LIGHT
Yatin: A rock is heavy
Kushi : the couch is heavy
Ella: The table is heavy
Oliver: a shark is heavy
Oliva: the TV is heavy
Rowena: a cow is heavy
Kaisha: a bed
Joseph: a closet
Avleen: a pen is light
Yatin: a tiny rock is light
Blake: Paper is light
Tino: a marble
Isaac: a pencil cup
We recorded our ideas.
Holy Family Spring Fair
The children we so excited to share what they had done and had seen at the Spring Fair so we had the opportunity to talk to others and record our experiences
This afternoon we explored a variety of investigations focussed around the measurement of weight.
Yatin: “with the weighing thing the dinosaur was heavier. and when I was looking at the books I drew a hammer that was heavy thing and a balloon was light. With another book there were bead to measure… the rabbit was 3 beads and the tree was up to the top 10 beads and the flower was 5 bead.” Which was the longest? “The tree”
Felix: 25.2 kg is how heavy I am!
Alphonsa: 22.6 kilograms – how heavy I am. With the cups I only put like 5 seeds in the light one and the other one I put more than 5.
Vanessa: I used the coat hanger, a glue stick on one side and an easer on the other, the glue stick was the heaviest, it went left.
Meklet: the pencil is heavier than the ruler because it went the other side. The t rex is heavier than the little t-rex because I measured it, the big one went down and the little one went up.
