Geography projects

Students have started creating 3D models of an Asian country. It has been great to see the different ways they have chosen to make their countries – foam, paper mache, paint, wood and cardboard are just some of the resources they have used. They’ve also used a number of different technologies, including their iPads, Google Earth, Interactive Whiteboards and cutting machines. Here are some photos of the beginning stages.

Integrated Studies – Asia

This term our Integrated Studies topic is Asia. Students have excitedly started making a 3D model of an Asia country. In Auslan, they are comparing the similarities and differences between their country and Australia. Over the next few weeks, students will be looking at different statistics about their country and representing this as an infographic. Please complete the survey to help us understand how different ways that we can survey people and graph data! One you’ve submitted your answer, click on ‘See previous answers’ to see the survey results so far.

 

Which country would you most like to visit in Asia and why? Have you visited any countries in Asia already?

Student blogs

This week the Grade 6s have been working on setting up their own student blogs. I am impressed with how much they have already learnt and how they have worked collaboratively to teach each other new things. Here are some examples of what we have learnt so far:

  • Chloe has learnt to put a picture on her blog
  • Matt learnt how to put a text widget on his blog to show that he is participating in the Student Blogging Challenge
  • We learnt to write blogs that were interesting and didn’t include too much personal information, like Lucia’s ‘About Me’ post and Hayley’s welcome post.
  • Milly learnt how to put a ClustrMap on her page so she could count her visitors. 4 so far!

Everyone has learnt something new about blogging this week. Have a look at our class blog list to see how our blogs are looking so far!
