As part of their IB Inquiry, "My Senses," students in Kindergarten visited Royal Botanical Gardens to participate in a program called "Making Sense of Nature" where students walked outside on the trail and learned how to use their eagle-eyes, owl-ears and fox nose!
They discovered that nature is full of new sights, sounds, smells, and textures, and students also fed the chickadees, woodpecker and saw the swan and the geese. A great place to exercise their senses outdoors and explore the world around them.
Grade 8 students stepped into the role of cell biologists during their Scientists in School workshop. Learning slide preparation and compound microscope use, they compared and contrasted plant and animal cells along with cheek cells and other human body cells to determine their structure. Students also explored osmosis and diffusion through hands-on experiments to expand their knowledge of their current unit of study.
MAC Grade 6 students visited 'Rocket Digital Media' on an experiential learning trip. Students were exposed to the various techniques used by advertisers to create campaigns to help sell products and ideas. A great look into the world of digital advertising and marketing!
