Grade 8

April showers bring Mayflowers.  Wow, hard to believe another month has come and gone, and now we are about to get April on its way.  Students in grade 7 and 8 Social Studies have been working on a project where they are creating a new country.  Once finished, they will convince me why their country is the best. However, no country will be better than the other.  Students in grade 9 Citizenship are learning about genocide.  They are working on an assignment comparing modern day genocide to genocide of the native people in North America.  Students in grade 7 Health are looking at drugs and how they affect the brain, plus other addictions such as gambling and video games.

Happy Easter!

Spring is on its way. Yippy. February has been a busy month for the students:
outdoors learning, a field trip and a famous guest speaker. With all of this going
on students have also had their regular work to do. In grade 7 Health students
have been mapping the brain and getting ready to use what they found to
connect to what part of the brain drugs affect. Grade 7 and 8 Social Studies
students have been learning about colonization from first contact to The War of
1812 and next they will be learning how all these events lead to the beginning of
Canada’s shameful acts towards its First People. Grade 9 Citizen students have
learned about old money, new money and no money. Society turning its back on
the most vulnerable people both domestically as well as on the world stage.

Well that’s it for me.
