We Walk 4 Water – Water Campaign Launch

After a lot of fun and a lot of work we are ready to launch our water campaign.  

The grade 5/6 students have been working with Mme Moar’s class to create a campaign to raise awareness about the water crisis.  The students learned together about how difficult it is to access clean water in some developing countries.  We also learned about how buying disposable water bottles here at home has many negative impacts on the environment.  Even in Canada, the land of water, we need to conserve. 

On Thursday, May 16th we will be walking to the Lake to collect water.  We will carry large jugs to fill up and carry back to emulate the conditions for women and girls in developing countries.  Except our walk is shorter and our load will be lighter.  We are hoping the radio will play our ad and the local paper will turn up.  Our walk is on the same day that Spencer West’s walk ends.  He has been walking from Edmonton to Calgary to raise money for Free the Children’s campaign for clean water.  His walk is called We Walk 4 Water and can be found here.  Spencer is very inspiring and our classes watched his talk from We Day last year. 

For the next few days I will be posting the students work.  Some photos of poster, some videos, a radio ad, GLOGS and stop-motion animation.

Our 21st Century Classroom Video Entry

We submitted our video entry for the 21st Century Mindshare Learning Video contest. We learned about the contest about three weeks ago and decided to do our best to create an entry. I am very proud of the work the students did in a short period of time to get this video completed. I know they had lots of fun doing it and we will continue to have fun and learn as we move forward with our Water campaign project.

iPads! & A Math test this Thursday!

On Friday we got to play with our new iPads. They were purchased through a special funding program that I applied for last year. We will be using the iPads to support our math learning and to create multi-media presentations. Watch for more coming up!

On Thursday we starte to learn how to use FRAMES, a stop-motion software program for digital story telling. We will be creating our own animations of stories in the near future, once we learn how to use the program. For more information about the program follow this link to Tech4Learning.

There will be a math test this Thursday for both grades.

The students have been given a test outline. We will review in class and they will get take home review questions that are modeled from the test tomorrow.

Here are the outlines:
