Stream Tables–Our Own Investigations!

Published by under Uncategorized

In Science, we’ve been learning about Landforms. I’ve been learning all sorts of new words such as erosion, deposition and canyon. Today in Science class we were able to design our own stream table investigation. We’ve been learning about how water carves away the earth materials, such as in the Grand Canyon. So far, we’ve done experiments with stream tables dealing with flood situations, slope and of course a standard (flat surface, no change to the original set up).

Our group decided to test what would happen when we added a mountain infront of the water source. (See the picture below of what our set up looked like).  I predicted that_______________.

What ended up happening was that__________________________

It was quite interesting to get a chance to see what everyone else’s stream tables results looked like. I was most surprised by _____________ because _______________. If I was to do it all over again, next time I might choose to investigate ________________.

Visible Thinking!

Published by under Uncategorized

Hi Visitors,
You may (or may not) have heard about Wallwisher. What is it you ask?

Wallwisher is an Internet application that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily.

We used it the other day to record our thinking about a chapter we had listened to from our current Read Aloud called Vive La Paris by Esme Raji Codell.  The Wall Wisher activity embedded below shows you our thinking during or after the read aloud that day. Check it out!

Have you ever used Wall Wisher before?  If so, what for?

I’m originally from London, Ontario Canada and thought it was really COOL when I read my hometown’s online newspaper and discovered a guy from my hometown was on the Ellen DeGeneres Show! His name is Mike Tompkins and he is a very gifted man.

Watch the whole video I’ve embedded here to see why then write a comment and tell me what YOU think.
