Science & Design and Technologies
Throughout the term students explored the three main states of matter and how they fluctuate amongst each other through cooling or heating. During lessons, students had opportunities to conduct experiments, determine variables and draw conclusions based on their observations and the explicit teaching that occurs in a weekly basis.
For our Design and Technologies strand, students used their inquiry skills to research and construct their working models for the STEM fair. The use of circuits and kinetics was incorporated into our project elaboration. Students were heavily engaged throughout and the lessons created great discussions amongst students, helping them develop their problem-solving skills.
