Dare to Care

IREC students attended an amazing presentation called “Dare to Care.”  We learned valuable tools on what to say and do when confronted by a bully or when we witness someone else being bullied.

Grade 3’s, here’s your challenge!

Tell me 2 things you learned from the Dare to Care presentation that you can use to protect yourself from a bully.

Tower Building

We created towers out of recycled materials in our Building Unit in Science.  We learned that a tall tower needs a wide base for it to be stable and that cutting holes into our towers will also be helpful when it’s windy (fan).  The air from the fan blew through the holes of the towers and they were able to stay standing.

Building Animals

The students did an amazing job planning and building their animals. They used their schema (background knowledge) from our Testing Unit to help them build a strong and stable animal.

When you comment on this post please explain how you made your animal stable. Think about the size of its head, body, shape of legs, position of the legs under the body, etc. Have fun and I look forward to reading all the posts!
