STEM challenge in grade 8 today. Highest free standing structure. Bella and Jude took first place with 110 cm!
Students were given a certain amount of tin foil to create a boat. Marbles/items were added to see which boat could hold the most weight. There were a bunch of different designs throughout the groups. Winners this time around were Jessy, Lillian and Zedrick. Their boat held a whopping 1972g of marbles/items.
Happy March LSK! It will be a fun filled month with Winter Carnival Week, and of course March break coming up. Our Citizenship 9 course has begun this semester, we have been learning about types of political activism and students are researching young indigenous activists who represent their communities from around the world. In Social Studies 7 our class has been studying African Canadian history, and to end off our unit on Viola Desmond we created a class mosaic art piece (photo attached). In ELA we have completed our class novel studies of Hatchet in ELA 8 and Indian Horse in ELA 9, congrats on your hard work everyone.
Students in grades 7 to 9 were invited to participate in a 3-station workshop for trapping. The first station included the skinning of a beaver, the second station was for crafting snares and learning how to utilize and take care of the snare, and the third station was for learning about species indentification and biology, including tracks, pelts, anatomy, habitat and scat. Special thanks to our Sipekne'katik community, Lands and Foresty staff and the Nova scotia Trapppers Association for these wonderful teachings.
It's hard to believe we are halfway through the school year at this point. A big thanks to the grade 9 students who worked hard to prepare for exams this term, great work! I am excited to start teaching Citizenship 9 this semester, we will be investigating all sorts of interesting community/world issues. We also continue to work through our class novel studies of Hatchet in ELA8 and Indian Horse in ELA9, and will be reaching the time for final book reports soon.

I hope all students and families of LSK are staying safe and healthy at this time. I want to say thank you to all of my grade 8 students who quickly helped clean up our classroom on Tuesday, and please continue to follow along on Google Classroom as we make our transition to online learning this month. We have begun our class novel study of Hatchet in ELA8 and Indian Horse in ELA9. We will continue to work on these together during our google classroom meets. Looking forward to seeing all my students online!
