Today we watched a very powerful movie to end our Biodiversity unit called The Inconvenient Truth. POST your thoughts about the movie.

Happy Family Day on Monday!!
Today we were imagining what it would be like before there was civilization. It was a time of hunters and gatherers, wandering to find food and moving to where the animals were.
We also took a look at how human species have evolved. Take a closer look at this interactive timeline from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
Here is a definition of civilization.
Next Friday is the Candygram delivery and we will make Valentine pockets for those who wish to pass out Valentines.
POST one kind thing you will do for a friend, family member or acquaintance in honour of Valentine's. Here is a link with some history and information about Valentine's Day.
Remember this weekend you are assessing your work on a Fresh grade that I will create tonight. You will discuss how you are doing in your work since we are about half way through our term. I will post guidelines for this Interim on Fresh grade so you can assess your learning any time after Saturday morning.
I will give you time in class to assess your science performance after this weekend as I will be finished marking your posters, brochures and slide shows. You will then share your learning with your parents and they can comment on your Fresh grade next week.
Be sure to assess your progress on the Soapstone activity as well.
NO SCHOOL MONDAY DUE TO FAMILY DAY.
Bring in your Scholastic book orders. They will be due on Friday, February 19.
We worked hard today, grade 7's on FSA's and 6's on giving feedback for writing. Some of you found out that you did not follow through on your writing goals this week. You will be reflecting on this tomorrow so be thinking about how to revise your plan or follow through with your plan next week. Set yourself up for success...you can do it.
I was impressed by your focus, creativity and willingness to explore on the gymnastics equipment today.
Now that we are finished our science unit on Biodiversity, we are about to begin our study on Ancient Civilizations, namely Mesopotamia. POST one question you have about ancient civilizations and find one piece of information on Ancient Mesopotamia.
Last day tomorrow for Candygrams
Great focus today! POST your questions and comments about our discussion today on gossip and the ichart we did on manners and being respectful.
Grade 6/7s Remember you have until Monday to complete your math homework. We have had to rearrange our math lessons and classes because of our clay mask making and soapstone. Be sure to see your teacher if you are unsure of how to complete your practice questions.
