Science & Design and Technologies
This term students thoroughly explored the fungi kingdom and conducted numerous experiments on mold and how it can grow. Students were able to understand how and where mold grows, different types of fungi, and determined through investigations and exploring which ones are beneficial, which ones aren’t and how it can be found in our daily life. Students learned yeast is a type of fungi, and how it is used to make bread, therefore students tried their cooking skills this term, consolidating our unit with some delicious bread.
For our design and technologies strand, students used their inquiry skills to research and learn about kinetic and potential energy and how this knowledge can be implemented into building a structure that moves. Students created and built robots, arcade games and toys and explained the kinetic/potential energy in it.
