Grade 8

In Social Studies they are completing a section on “Culture” and will soon be starting a new Unit on “Canadian Identity”. In Industrial Arts they have started designing wood projects, such as mirrors. In Home Ec. the boys have started sewing with sewing machines and are starting to make pyjama pants. In Health/Guidance they are examining eating disorders and are busy promoting physical activity to children at lunch hour by organizing and playing games with younger students. In Math they are working with Integers and having a Unit test late in the week of Nov 19th. In Science they are studying about “Organ Systems”. Physical Education has started a Basketball Unit and is continuing a games unit with Tchukball amongst others.

Early in the New Year a winter activities unit will start over at the curling/skating rink and organizing to get a pair of skates will be beneficial, but a helmet is required. Even if the student borrows or shares with another student from another grade would be appreciated. The ELA class has begun studying the novel called “The Outsiders”.
