This term we have explored Measurement. We discovered the weight of objects using balance scales. We had to have a guess at which objects were going to be heavier or lighter than another. Once we did our estimate we had to measure them and see if we were correct. Some things we noticed were an eraser and a pair of scissors weigh the same, a pencil is lighter than a black marker and having two weights on one side and five on the other doesn’t always mean the side with the five weights is going to be heavier just because it has more weights.
This week we went and visited our buddies. We went over to the Year Six classrooms to meet with our buddy. We first watched a story called Tiddalik the Frog. This story was about a frog who sucked up all the river water. All the animals were trying to make him laugh so he could release all the water back into the river, but nothing worked. Finally the snail came along and danced around Tiddalik and he laughed so hard that he released all the water back into the riverWe then completed an activity to do with NAIDOC Week. We could colour a boomerang, write a story using Aboriginal symbols or create an acrostic poem. We had lots of fun with our buddies.
