Hi everyone. I hope you had a great week and got outside for some Vitamin D and fresh air. 

Your mission this week, if you choose to accept, is to keep yourself busy outside going for a walk, job, mow the lawn for your parents, go for a bike ride with your friends, swimming and just being happy and healthy.

I have attached this week's STEAM Challenge for any of you that are interested. Your challenge this week is to design and construct a model boat that is sea worthy and resistant to capsizing.

This is your last week of home learning. Make the best of it. You are all going to be missed. It has been an "odd" year to say the least but here's hoping next year we will be long underway to our "New Normal". 

7B please be sure to join us for our LAST Team Chat for this year. Remember, I am just an email away if you want to share anything or just want to talk, let me know and I will give you a call.

Have a safe, active and happy summer. Remember to social distance and keep those hands clean and away from your face.

This week your STEAM activity is to bake something from scratch and then eat it, of course.

As you will be eating your new tasty treats, your PE activities are to participate in the second week of the ASDN Virtual Olympics.

Have a great week everyone.

Please see attached document for the STEAM activity. I will continue to post the Virtual Olympics each day on Facebook on the Nelson 

Rural Information page.

Please see attached for the activities for Day One of the Virtual Olympics as well as the Scorecard.

Enjoy!

Attached please find this week's STEAM activity. 

Rube Goldberg was a cartoonist and inventor who liked to create overly complex machines to complete a simple task using a series of chain reactions.  Think dominoes, ramps, levers, pulleys, and more! 

Your challenge is to watch some Rube Goldberg machines in action, get inspired, then create your own machine outdoors using natural objects such as rocks, sticks, hills, etc. Don't forget to click on the link below for your instructions.

I would like you to incorporate your PE activities this week into the STEAM Activity by creating an outdoor obstacle course that could include ramps, levers, pulleys, etc. Then challenge your family members or friends from your bubble to give it a try. Maybe you could work with a couple of your close friends to create an even more challenging obstacle course only using outdoor materials. 

I would love to see some of your obstacle courses. Maybe you could make a short video and share it with me at wendy.baldwin@nbed.nb.ca.

Have a great week everyone and be sure to get outside. It is going to be beautiful.

Good luck to all participants in the ASDN Virtual Olympics that begin tomorrow.

Take a look at the video Addyson and Alexa Underhill's mom took of them staying physically active. Great job setting up this obstacle course for the girls. Mom and Dad did it too, but no video!!! I'm proud of you girls.

If anyone else has pictures or videos of themselves or their families taking part in physical activity, could you please email them to me at wendy.baldwin@nbed.nb.ca so I can post them on my Teacher Page for everyone to enjoy!

Happy Monday. It was nice to see some of your parents this morning picking up your stuff. Made me miss you all even more.

For all of you in Grade 7 & 8, I have attached below the STEAM activity for this week.

Big news for those whom had been working on a STEM Fair project, they are going to have a virtual nation-wide STEM Fair. I have also attached below an email from Mr. Savoy explaining how it works. You may sign up for it as of today.

I hope all are getting outside and enjoying the sun when it shines. Please stay physically active. The Cove is a great way for the family to go on a hike together. There is still some snow on the curling club signed on the hills, but that just makes it more fun!!!! If you do go, you will have to do the Red Trail (Creaghan Gulch) as the bridge is out on the Blue Trail. It was beautiful there yesterday and a great cardio workout.

I will upload a couple of other science activities once I get home. The school computer is taking too long!!

Don't forget about our Team Meeting on Wednesday at 1:30. Look forward to talking to you all.

Have a great week.

Ms. Baldwin
