Grade Three Update

Our Unit: Sharing the Planet
Grade Three Camp
The kids were separated into groups that spanned different classes, so as to give them an opportunity to make new connections with other students and challenge themselves to work in unfamiliar teams. Many of the activities gave the kids an opportunity to work through a challenge as part of a team, and many students showed great independence and good problem-solving skills in tackling these challenges.
The activities included nature hiking, treasure hunts, making a small fire, constructing a "couch" from bracken, team-building games and activities, ziplining, wading in a creek, designing and painting and flag, toasting marshmallows and bread over a campfire, and many other things besides. The feedback from the kids has been very positive, and overall the trip was a success.
We would like to say that we had a wonderful time at camp! It's been a great experience for us to see the children out of school in a different setting.
In German, we have continued to talk about children's rights. We did a "trip around the world" and looked at children and their rights in other countries.
Our language focus has been on reading and listening. The kids have been introduced to the so-called "W-Fragen" and we have been practicing using them.
On Thursday, 3b, 3c, and 3d will go to the Ottobock-Science Center which connects to our unit as it relates to the right of equal opportunities regardless of physical disabilities and also to our previous unit about innovations. 3a will go on this field trip next week. We are very excited about our visit!
