Hello 2/3 Families,

It is hard to believe the end of the year is coming!

To the end the year, students will be presenting “El Gran Capoquero” on Monday, June 3rd at 10:45 AM. We will also record the presentation to post online because we know mid-day presentations are challenging.


We started our final unit this week; maybe you noticed the footprints on your way in this morning! Students are exploring Where We Are in Place and Time by inquiring into how evidence from discoveries may explain how the earth has changed over time. Our three lines of inquiry are:

  • Identifying the different changes on Earth over time. (eras-geological timeline)
  • Understanding evidences that explain changes on Earth. (fossils, tectonic plate, continental drift, rocks and minerals)
  • Interpreting changes between past and modern life forms. (non-avian theropods and modern birds).

If you or someone you know has knowledge or experiences to share with the students, please contact one of the 2/3 teachers. We would love to have the opportunity to learn from you!

Thank you, Becks, for sharing with the students and helping them understand all the changes our world has seen! Check out the pictures from this special presentation under the Photos tab!
