Hello Grade 5’s

back_to_school1

Welcome to Mr. Fox’s Grade 5 class website for the 2016-2017 school year.
From here you can find current information about what is going on in our classroom, view assignments, due dates and notes that have been sent home. It will also be a place for students to show off work from class and share their ideas with the world.
You can also sign up for my Twitter updates at @MrIFox or text message updates at Remind101.
There are links along the top of the page that link to the various aspects of the curriculum being covered.

As always important notes will still come home as a paper copy or through the email address you’ve provided to the school.

Thanks
Mr. Fox

First Nations & European Explorers Projects

Students are currently examining life in early North America.  They are choosing a variety of ways to show their learning.  Please see their Social Studies duo-tang for the choices.
Research needs to be done using a variety of sources that include both books and online.

Stockmarket Game

Students have been given $1000 “Fox Bucks” to invest in the stock market.  With their groups they will  decide how to spend the money and at the end of April students will see if their investments have made or lost money.

Check out these websites to find out more about the companies.

Health: Food Journals Sorting

Students completed a 3-day food journal for homework this past week.
Now they’ve been asked to make a chart and sort the food into the 4 food groups & an other category based on the Canada Food Guide.
http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/food-guide-aliment/index-eng.php

Once completed answer the following questions.

  1. Which food groups do you feel that you don’t get enough of? Explain.
  2. Create a plan and a list of foods you want to try to eat more of to help with a well balanced diet.

Due: Dec. 8th
