Our New Unit!

310 0

To launch our new unit of inquiry, we started this gloomy Monday morning off with an exciting building activity! The students were challenged with a task to build a pyramid out of sugar cubes, but the trick was they couldn’t use their hands! Students were encouraged to use simple machines that they learned about in STEM, along with some guidance from Madame Shannon to complete the task and build the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

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!
