Beech Class – Novel study active learning challenges

We are reading the book ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers.  These are just a few of our active learning challenges:

Can you build a Lego boat using only 20 bricks?  That can fly?  That can go underwater?

Can you build a boat big enough to carry 2 real life passengers?

Dissecting flowers

To start our topic on life processes we dissected flowers to find the different parts and discussed their role in reproduction. The children found the stigma, carpel, ovary and sepal.
