Fun with Water, Life in water, water around us – were the topics explored this month in the Grade 4 classroom. Children brought cut out of water animals and birds with facts about them. They also had creative writing – ‘If I were a raindrop’ or ‘I was a fish in the water’ The most exciting part for children were drawing fish and water animals on the blue river (painted on the floor in each class). Some also added ships and boats above the river. And they took care so that nobody walked over their fish! By preparing for quiz questions around water life, drawing fish on the blue river and shades of blue wet on wet painting their engagement with the topic was deeper. Water was a topic greatly enjoyed.
