Going to Agribition!

Next week, we will be going to the Canadian Western Agribition.  Here is the website!  Please look around the website and answer the following questions:

1.  Look at this web page.  What kind of crops can be in the seed competition?
2.  Click on the Ranch Horse Catalogue and write a little bit about one of the horses in it.  (3 sentences)
3.  List three sponsors of the Agribition listed here.
4.  What are three events at the Agribition we will be able to see?  Look at this list.
5.  What are some other events that will take place in the evenings?  (After 6pm)

Write the answers to these questions on a piece of paper and hand them in tomorrow.  They are due Wednesday, November 16th.

If you are finished the Agribition questions, take some time to look at these websites about farm animals.  We will see many of these at Agribition on November 22nd.

For Agribition, please remember the following:
- Bring a warm jacket
- Wear older shoes
- Bring lunch and some water
- You may also bring some money to buy lunch or a treat (e.g. popcorn, hamburgers, hotdogs, ice cream)
- Stay with your group leader (teacher); Agribition is VERY large and we must stay with our groups at all times.
- Animals always go first.  They are much bigger than you so wait for them to go first.
- You will be dismissed from your Period 1 class at 9 am.  The bus will be ready to go at 9:15 am.  Meet in Ms. Wurm's classroom.
- Have fun!

The Diversity of Living Things

Welcome to our EAL Science blog.  This is where you can find Science websites which we will be using during class.  I will also post your homework assignments here.

The first unit we are studying this year is the diversity of living things.  Yesterday, we learned about living and non-living things.  Today, we will be discovering the five kingdoms that scientists have created to classify living things.  The word classify means to put things into smaller groups.

Here is a website that explains the different groups:
