The timeline age

Posted by in Time

The primary school class with shared schooling has worked the time line of the ages. We have continued working through the conceptual map by asking the same question that the teachers did: What does it mean time? Different ideas emerged: prehistoric times, present-past-future, when we were babies … Among all the students we decided to work the timeline ages and we classify it into five sections: babies, children, adolescents, adults and old people.¬†We made a brainstrom from each of the sections. Then we asked families to take pictures of families…read more

How do we measure our activities?

Posted by in Time

In high school class with occupational skills, we have tried to measure our activities from clocks made by ourselves made from recycled materials. To relate it to the theme of the Elements, we have continued working through water and created a water clock that helped us to measure time in another way. It has been very interesting to know different ways to measure our activities.

The time

In the elementary school we have created a mural with different activities, answering two questions: – How do we measure time? We have produced an analog clock, to work specific hours, two sand clocks of 20 seconds and 40 seconds that when we turn them we hope that the sand falls and then we play the bell, and we have made a calendar on the computer where we set the day in which we are and at the same time we treat the past. – How does the time pass?…read more

Discover the land

Posted by in Elements

One of the elements we have discovered has been the land. We asked different questions. One of them was: Where can we find land? Some of the answers were: the beach, the mountain, the school … For this reason we went to walk around the school to see if there was land and what we could find on earth.We took some containers and we took everything we were finding on the land. Then we went back to school and classified it, we wrote some posters and we made a small…read more

One of the group in primary school has worked about all the elements. How did they work? To work the elements with the students we have created a panel with the four elements. The students have painted and decorated each one of the symbols, we made some sensorial boxes. LAND: We have looked for playground the elements, rocks, branches and leaves. AIR: We put confetti that they have made themselves and a windmill. FIRE: We used a candle that we burn and blow when we work it. WATER: We put…read more

How can we stop the fire?

Posted by in Elements

The students of primary school worked the fire last week. We followed the same line of work as with the air. We made a concept map with different questions: How is the fire? Who invented the fire? What can we do with the fire? Where can we find the fire? How can we stop the fire? We answered the questions and then we put in pairs and looked for different ways to stop the fire, places where we could find fire and things we could do with the fire. It…read more

The elements in the speech therapy class

Posted by in Elements

One of the programming that I use in my class is the one of the blow. For this I modify the structure of the class to be able to make a circuit in which the activities are sequenced in a linear way. I have taken advantage of the theme of the elements to integrate it into this programming, since my initial programming included air, water and fire. I just needed to add the land !!! So I work the elements: – Air: It is the main element in this programming….read more

How is the air and what can it do?

Posted by in Elements

In primary school with shared schooling, we are working on all the elements. Every week we know a new element and together we make a concept map where each one contributes their ideas. Then we do an experiment on the element worked. This week we worked on the air. In the conceptual map we described how it is the air, what causes the air (from tornadoes to energy), objects or things that make air (fan, hair dryer, mouth …) and objects or things that the air can fly (papers, feathers…read more
