Grade 3 - February 22/ 2019

G3 Homeroom News

We hope everyone enjoyed the Family Day long weekend! This week, the Grade 3s delved deeper into the new unit of inquiry on how our physical environment influences how we live. They did some mapping of the three landform regions in Ontario - Hudson Bay Lowlands, Canadian Shield and The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Lowlands - and will continue exploring these regions in greater detail in the few weeks to come.

In math, we focussed on using different multiplication strategies to show what we know - arrays, equal groups and equations. We also introduced the concept of division, which will be our focus for the next few weeks as we relate what we know about multiplication to division.
