World Water Day Bottles DUE TOMORROW
Donating money will directly help a community of people in need, but there are other ways to make a positive impact. Watch the video below for ideas on how to conserve water. I'm going to try tip number 4 tonight!
We found seashells on the . . . playground?
Book Week was a BLAST!
A Letter from Visiting Archaeologist Filiz
Dear grade 3 students,
Thank you all! Today I received a large envelop with your reports and drawings. I enjoyed reading them. Your observations were good. There were also some questions:
Class 3EG: Jin Hyo asked about archaeology of Korea, Pablo about Spain and India about New Zealand. Korean archaeology is very important to understand the prehistoric events in East Asia. There are lots of excavations in Spain, e.g. Merida, an important Roman city. And in New Zealand you can study the archaeology of Maori settlements. Emma asked about underwater archaeology, google Uluburun shipwreck Emma!
Class 3JK: Lukas asked 'where does an archaeologist work? In a lab? A building?' An archeologist works in the field (especially in the summer, when it's dry), if you find artefacts and ecofacts you bring them to the lab and museum, and later on you continue to work at the university, museum and/or library in order to date and interpret your finds.
Your drawings were extremely good! I could recognize the tools, coins, vases and oil-lamps!
Thanks a lot again, enjoy your project!
