On Thursday, the Grade 2s visited the Grade 5 Art Exhibition. Since we have been learning about communication, we decided to learn more from our visit.
The children had guiding questions related to communication to help them in their learning.
Here is what they found out:
The Grade 5s used the following types of communication: music, speaking, writing, signs, computer sites, typing, posters, charts, signals, hand movements, art and more.
Some of the tools the Grade 5s used were: computers, iPad, paper, pencil, books, Internet, Youtube, charts, posters, websites, phone, art, pictures, quizzes, pen, Britannica School, fake food, Tips for…, and more.
Some of the skills that they needed were: reading, how to communicate with blind people, speaking, how to add details, speaking out loud, using hand signals, using body language, using e-mail, using a computers, taking notes, and more.
The Grade 5s researched their questions and wonderings by using the following resources: Internet, reading books, looking on websites and videos, interviewing people, looking at documents and pictures, visiting places, going to learning centers, researching on the computer, as well as asking experts, friends, teachers and parents.
They organized their learning by first researching, then sorting out, then doing more research, and then making posters.
They wrote their learning in a folder.
They categorized their questions.
They organized their presentations by putting up posters and remembering what details and topics they are talking about.
There were not a lot of words, they had an attractive look, and they organized the posters and pictures.
