IREC celebrates 100th Day!!!

026

We celebrated 100th day by dressing up like a 100 year old granny or grandpa, wearing bracelets and necklaces made out of 100 elastics, 100 paperclip necklaces, 100 dollar bills, and several fun costumes. The students put over 100 autographs in alphabetical order and started our trivia facts assignment using the Chromebooks. A fun-filled day of learning about that special number 100!

Strength of Triangles

During our Testing Unit in Science the students created various shapes such as a square, pentagon, and hexagon with strips of paper and brass paper fasteners. Then they were given longer strips of paper to help make their “weak” shapes stronger. By adding the extra strips of paper, the students noticed small triangles within their original shape.

We’ve been experiencing cold Alberta windchills, so the students have been staying inside for recess. They have been synergizing together creating lego figures and even made “Mrs. Litzenberger” out of straws and connectors.
