This week’s word of the week is relentless. Let me know if you can use it in your writing.

Connectives

We have been trying to use a variety of connectives in our writing this week. 

How many connectives do you know? 

This game will help you practice using the appropriate connective in a sentence.

We are going to write non-chronological reports on Whales next week and this week we began learning information about them. However, some children said they would like to find out some more information. This picture is a link to the WWF website and a lot more information.

Water Transportation Experiment

Here is a similar version of the experiment we did in class today. Maybe you would like to carry your own experiment at home and let us know how it turned out. I wonder if a different colour of food colouring would have an effect. What about the size of the stalk?

Let me know your results.

  1. Celery Experiment

    Step 1

    Gather your materials.

  2. Celery Experiment

    Step 2

    Cut about one inch off the bottom of four celery stalks.

  3. Celery ExperimentStep 3

    Fill each jar about halfway with water. Then, drip a few drops of food colouring into each glass.

  4. Celery Experiment

    Step 4

    Stick the celery stalks in the coloured water and let them sit for about 20 minutes.

  5. Celery Experiment

    Tip!

    Rip open 1 or 2 of the celery stalks to better see how the color travels through the stalks.

  6. Celery ExperimentStep 5

    Come back to the celery after 20 minutes and check out the stalks! What do you see? Colour should start to appear in little dots on the ends of them!
