On Thursday, students were introduced to our last Humanities assignment which is a country research project. Students chose a country that they would like to learn more about. They were not allowed to chose Canada, the United States or the countries they studied last year in Grade 3. Students will be researching next week to find as much information as they can on their country. They will be looking for answers to 3 different types of questions.
Inch questions - questions that can be found immediately with a google search. Ex. What is the population of China?
Foot questions - questions that involve gathering information and creating a summary to answer the question. Ex. What is England's national sport, and how is it played?
Yard questions - a question that involves looking at multiple resources to come up with your own answer or opinion. Ex. Would you recommend visiting your country why or why not?
Once the research portion is completed, students will be working on displaying their information on either a poster paper provided by the school or a individually bought and brought in trifold. On June 21, all grade 4 students will be involved in a Multi-Cultural Fair where they will present their research and poster to 3 of the other grade 4 classes and then have a chance to view 3 classes projects. More information will come on this later.
