This morning, Grade 5 went on an exciting trip as part of our provocation for our new unit on Energy. It was the perfect start to what will be a rewarding journey of discovery. The unit will give our students the opportunity to work and think scientifically. It will also increase our awareness about energy conservation and protecting our resources here on earth. This trip to the Qatar Scientific Club saw the students engage in a variety of learning experiences hosted by STEM Xplorers. The aim of this trip was to develop creativity and knowledge about science through a hands on program, amazing science show and an out of this world experience with a 3D scientific movie about Climate Change.
This trip is only the beginning. This new unit will see Grade 5 go to the MYP science labs to collaborate with and learn from MYP’s wonderful Mr. Muhammed and Ms. Harang. Even our summative assessment task will be totally unique with the children designing and creating toys from recyclable materials and Little Bits. Little Bits are small, open source, modular electronics components that snap together to form larger circuits. We had the opportunity to play around with circuits today on our trip too and we might even have a go of Makey Makey circuits when we come back after the midterm break.
We hope you are as excited as we are. Have a look at our amazing photos and please feel free to leave comments.
