About the blog

Since I have started using Remind 101 to send home daily reminders via text message, I have not been posting them on the blog.  In the future, I will be posting pictures/video and activities that we do in class on the blog.  The most up to date calendar is always on the blog and I will only be sending paper calendars home to those families that request them.  There are also school calendars on the school website http://spring.gssd.ca

If you ever have any suggestions for links to add to the blog, send them to me and I will add them!
If you would like information on receiving Remind 101 messages, please send me an email @ janel.schultz@gssd.ca

How Things Move

We will be looking to the different ways things can move.  To begin, we will look at how things can move through the air with some paper helicopters and paper airplanes.  We will investigate if there is a difference between big or small paper helicopters and which paper airplane can fly the farthest.
The patterns we will use to make these can be found here:
Paper Airplanes
Paper Helicopter

Feel free to try these at home and send your models to school.  At home you could even do an investigation and share your findings with us at school.  Does the paper used make a difference?  What if the weight at the bottom of the helicopters is different?  Can any of the airplanes carry a passenger?  Does inside (warm air) or outside (cold air) make a difference in how the paper airplanes move?  Be creative!
