Today, we spent the day at Science World! It was a great trip. Our main intention was to go see the special exhibit Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out. In this exhibit, there were plastinates of different animals showing their internal systems. While this was not always easy for all of us to look at, it was a very cool way to learn about the details of animals' body systems. Grade 6 was asked to specifically focus on observing similarities and differences between humans' systems and those of other animals. Grade 7 was asked to focus on why animals might have developed particular characteristics over time, as we'll be looking at evolution. We also had a short workshop in the morning where we got to explore either chemical change or the nervous system. Of course, we got to tour many of the other games and exhibits at Science World throughout the day as well. Thanks to all of our parent volunteers for helping to make this trip a success!
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
