The Purring Panthers have figured out their new unit of study by inferring the topic. Mrs. Atkinson brought in a variety of objects for our new unit of inquiry, Physical Wellbeing. We had to look at these objects and make some decisions about what we thought our topic was about.
|Here are the things we had to investigate and make conclusions.|
Now that we know our unit is Physical Wellbeing. We are now making posters about what we already know about health and our well being.

The Purring Panthers are learning about the ISM Dispositions this week. We first had to collaborate and communicate with our teammates. Each group researched their Disposition in different languages.
The class was split into three groups/generations and were given a large bowl of popcorn, symbolizing Earth's resources. When Generation 1 was instructed to take all that they wanted, they took almost all of the popcorn leaving only a few popped kernels for Generation 2. Unfortunately, none left for Generation 3. This led into a heated discussion to why a scenario like this was presented to the class during No Impact Week. Since Grade Three focused on energy, we discussed how the majority of our energy in the world is produced by non-renewable resources and that our behaviors have to change or they will run out. Here are several of the students' reflections after the simulation.
