We have given Mr. Amis the boot from his old room. Ha! Mrs. Davies has taken over!
It’s all ready for the new bright minds of the 6A and 6/7 classes!
Remember to get connected to this blog, Remind (see homework), and Google Classroom to stay connected this year (I will give the code out in class).
I can’t wait to see everyone today.
More learning in sound and light today. We spent lots of time in the dark today!
We learned that light travels in a straight line. We also learned that light can be stopped (ABSORBED) by some materials. I.e. the bat symbol
We also learned that light can reflect off shiny surfaces and pass through some surfaces.
We used prisms to learn that light is made up of many colours!
On Friday we experimented with making sound and tried to answer the following four questions:
1) How is sound produced?
2) How are low and high sounds made?
3) How does the shape and material of an object affect the sound it produces?
4) In what ways does sound affect our life?
At the end of the unit, we will revisit these questions.
Here’s what our room sounded like. YIKES!!!
Today we learned that sound is vibrations and that you can hear, feel, and even, see sound!
We learned new vocabulary such as vocal cords, sound waves, and molecules.
