Grade 4 completed a special STEM project with English teachers Mrs. Renee Pervin and Ms. Sandy Rosenthal in honour of Black History Month. The classes paid tribute to Canadian human rights champion Viola Desmond by building monuments in her honour. “Students worked together to imagine, plan and design a free-standing structure based on specific guidelines and using recyclable materials they brought from home,” said Mrs. Renee. “Some designs went off without a hitch while other groups had to go back to the drawing board to revise their ideas. Students really enjoyed collaborating and building together as a way to share what they had learned from their research.” The results? Remarkable! Click here for more photos.
