November at AcadeCap is innovation month. For this month’s iSTEAM challenge, students learned about the Fibonacci sequence. Students read a biography about Leonardo of Pisa, also known as Fibonacci. They explored the reproduction of bees, which follows the Fibonacci sequence through generations. Finally, they created Fibonacci sequence-inspired artwork.
About The Author
My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
