Science with Mrs. M. Friesen

We are currently beginning The Human Body unit. We are beginning with the digestive system and we are currently investigating nutrients and healthy foods.

Up next...

  • the parts of the digestive system and how they work.
  • The skeletal and muscular system and how we move.

Digestive system model:
A note will be going home about an upcoming project, where students will make a three - dimensional model of the digestive system in pairs. Found or recycled items can be collected now to be used to represent different organs in the digestive system. Please check your recycling bin and junk piles for possible treasures. More information will be coming home soon.

Students will be working on a ELA/Science research assignment for the next month.

Students will be researching how a manufactured product is made from a basic different substance, through processes of physical and chemical changes.
We have begun searching for useful websites, and we will be discussing the needed information, requirements and outcomes that will make a great final presentation. In the next little while students should be bringing home some information about what they are researching and what their topic is.
