Welcome to Room 9's learning page. This is where we will share the exciting learning that is happening in the classroom and where we can share our learning journey. Keep checking in and looking at what we're up to.
Today Room 9 reflected on our Genius Hour Work that we have done most of Term 1. We were using a new strategy called 2 Stars and 1 Wish. The students had to select 2 things they thought their partner did really well on their presentation and 1 wish that they needed to work on for next time. Here are some of of their reflections and some posters the students created.
Room 9 and Room 10 have been busy in the last week, planting and caring for our plants that we received from School Teacher Kit.
"We each got given a plant and had to unwrap it. Then we had to mix the soil with water that Miss T gave us. We then had to put half of our soil into the pot and put our seeds onto the soil. The rest of the soil had to be put on top of the seeds. we pressed down on the soil and put it in the hole with our name on it. Now we have to wait and see what happens.

The children take turns watering the plants each day and measuring how tall their plant is growing. its great to see the children show responsibility by taking care of their plants and making sure it has the necessities a plant needs to survive.
Wow! What a day Room 9 had. We had fun experimenting the fizzy taste that citric acid, icing sugar, jelly crystals and popping candy made in our mouths. We discussed what was happening in our mouths, and the chemical reaction that was occurring. As the solid of the sherbet and popping candy turned into a liquid with the help of our saliva, the reaction caused the gas carbon dioxide to form in our mouths making the fizzy and popping feeling on our tongues. Check out the process and end result of our sherbet.
