Good day bonjour ! Here’s our news.

Les sciences humaines 7D – The unit tests for Egypt were handed back today as everyone has completed it. We reviewed our geography notes and scheduled a quiz on the Greek geography for Friday, February 14. We completed the video on Greek mythology and we will use the next class as a research period for specific gods and goddesses.

La science 7D – We reviewed the terms taxonomie and ecologie. The students received a review page today for taxonomy that we will be using during the week. We started into some of  the questions from the workbook and students need to complete questions 2, 3, 4, and 7 for tomorrow’s class.

Les maths 7C & 7D – Tests and quizzes were handed back and we reviewed expressions. We used some sample scenarios and developed some expressions based on the information available. We scheduled a quiz on expressions for Thursday, February 13 and we will continue to practice expressions up until that date. There is no google classroom homework tonight since I received a majority of the duotangs today. We will resume it tomorrow.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We reviewed basic expressions in algebra and then added on a second element to the expression, the constant. We practiced developing expressions from word problems and worked on questions 1, 3, 7 and 8 in the textbook, page 18. Today’s google classroom homework was uploaded.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We reviewed the Greek geography and started into Ancient Greek mythology. The class was mainly used for research purposes as students selected several gods and goddesses to research. We will share our findings the next class.

Les sciences humaines 7D – We completed our analyses of the geography of six ancient city-states in Greece. We started into Greek mythology with a little video-clip on the beginnings of the known gods and goddesses of ancient Greece.

Bonjour à tous, voici notre journée !

Les sciences humaines 7D – We moved from analysing the geography of Greece to that of several city-states.

Les sciences humaines 7A – We discussed our analyses of the geography of several city-states. We then identified the strengths and weaknesses of the various city-states in regards to agriculture, commerce and defense. We started into Greek mythology and the origin stories.

Les maths 7D & 7C – We reviewed the structure and purpose of expressions. We focused much more on solving expressions by applying an outside value to the variable. We also worked on developing expressions based on the info provided in a scenario. The google classroom has been updated with today’s and tomorrow’s homework for those students away on Friday for a hockey tournament.
