Class Inquiry into what we do with our waste.

Over the last few weeks Room 5 have been learning to work together.

They are learning 'Collaborative Norm's (rules such as no put downs, one speaker at a time, everyone contribute)

They are also learning how important it is to make sure you understand learning tasks. Sometimes learning tasks can have words you do not understand that you need to 'un pack' first.

All groups compared and contrasted what Tautoro School did in 2008 and what we do now to manage out waste. Groups used venn diagrams to communicate their ideas.

I think it is cool how you re use you tins and pencil sharpenings for your worm farm. Have you thought about putting photos of what your worm farm looks like now on your blog?
