In one of our activities, the students were put into groups of 4 or 5, given two pieces of tin foil and 20 pipe cleaners and told to "work together to create something". Everyone had fun sharing ideas (and frustrations!) and working together to create a masterpiece. In these pictures you can see what each group's final creation looked like. Aren't they impressive?!?
We also learned a little bit about voting, elections and candidates when we got to choose our class mascot. First, our teacher read us "Vote for Duck" by Doreen Cronin.
Then the candidates for our class mascot were introduced. There was a walrus, polar bear, wolf, raven and caribou to choose from. After listening to their speeches, it was time to go to the polling station. We even had official Elections Canada materials to use. Here you can see one of our classmates finishing his voting duty.
And we were so excited when our teacher counted up the votes...Sam the wolf won! We also chose a class name and we will now be known as the "Party Wolves". We now end every day with three cheers for the Party Wolves and a big howl!
We were wondering...What do you think of our tin foil and pipecleaner creations?
What animal would you have chosen as a mascot? Why?
