Dear Grade 6 Families,
During our field trip today to the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre, the children learned about genomics and general cancer research by doing a DNA extraction from a strawberry and looking at cancer research laboratory equipment. I was very pleased with their participation as well as their behaviour.
Homework for this weekend includes:
- Read 30 minutes everyday both quietly and aloud
- Memorize your lines for Une entrevue aver mon ou ma camarade de classe for Monday
- See Google Classroom for Space Spinoffs. If you need to make corrections I wrote something by your name. Corrections are due Monday.
- Bring one candy cane for Wednesday
- Grade 6 Christmas Advent party – Dec. 12
- Christmas celebration: The Best Present of All – Dec. 17 (1pm and 7pm)
- Check PE blog for basketball practice
Enjoy your weekend!
Mrs. Caprilli and Ms. Carroll
