This week in Humanities, fourth graders continued their efforts on their Camp Sweet reflections during Writers Workshop and also reviewed some reading comprehension strategies in Readers Workshop. In addition to their ongoing "workshop" efforts, grade 4's were also introduced to their Social Studies topic for the year- our inquiry into Alberta. Students first brainstormed what they already know about the province and shared their knowledge in small groups. To further their introduction, the following questions were asked to be discussed at home: " Why do we live in Alberta?" and "What do we like about living in Alberta?" Our focus over the coming weeks will be on Alberta's land and industry and how both aspects are influential in our daily life.
