Welcome back to another amazing week of student led learning 🙂
This morning the students entered the classroom to their play-based investigations where students really worked on challenging their critical and creative thinking! The students resilience and team work was on show as they discussed their learning with each other, and how they could make new connections to their existing knowledge.
After recess we ventured over to MUDLA to investigate what has been happening in the newest area of our school, and used our learning powers of curiosity, creativity, sense making and collaboration, to create inquiry questions to investigate. Students chose to present their information in iMovies, Flipcharts, Keynote and the use of their learning journals. Here is what some of the children researched:
How many babies can a female yabbie lay at one time? – Alex R, Phillip
- It can have 100-1000 eggs at one time.
How long can a turtle live? – Manseerat
How long does the Murray Cod live for? – Lolla
– All female crabs have big tummies – Anna
How many species of fish are there? – Farah
Can yabbies grow their legs and claws back? – Jeffery
- They can continue to regrow them, it takes one day for them to grow back, yabbies can only live around 7 years.
Why are sea turtles underneath green? – Abhinav
- They eat to much sea grass.
Students inquiries will follow shortly 🙂
Fun fact from Mr McCarthy, the yabbie tank is currently home to over 400 baby yabbies!
All photos were taken by the students 🙂
Just to finish off, unfortunately last week we were unable to upload some of the amazing inquiry creations the students presented in regards to their learning about South Australia! Have a look below!
