Jim was here to present to us about Canada. We saw the presentation and we had a lot of questions. We listened to famous Canadian music and we saw a ‘pow-wow’ festival (it is a festival that is celebrated by aboriginal people or First Nations of Canada). We saw Canada’s Womens and Mens hockey team win the gold metal from Vancouver 2010. WOO HOO !! We did this to learn more about Canada.

Year 4 made the Magic School Bus lap books ( you can read all about them here). Year 4 invited year 3 to answer questions based on our projects. We did this to learn new things and challenge for year 3. We worked for many days to make the projects and then wrote questions for a scavenger hunt for year 3 .
We really liked the part of making the project and reading the book but we prefered the part when year 3 visited us!

Ladies and Gentlemen we did a project that was called Thanksgiving hand art! All of year 4 made one. First we traced our hand on paper, then we wrote on the hand. We used brown, green, orange, yellow and red paper. On each finger we wrote what we were thankful for. An example we were thankful for family, friends, water, food and school. We put our beautiful project ourside on the board and everyone can see our art. A pretty turkey at school. Our hands became the colourful feathers of the turkey.
