MidSun Grade 8 Update

It has been a very busy start to the school year.  This year, our grade eights have expanded to 9 classes, with approximately 270 students.  Out grade 8 team now resides entirely in the Gold Pod part of the school which has been wonderful for teachers and students alike.  It has enabled us to streamline our work with the grade eight learners.

This month in Grade 8 has been focused on World Issues.  In Humanities, the students have been discussing and learning about their World Views.  Some students represented their World Views in visual displays that were an amazing symbolization of how they view themselves as part of the global community. 

In Science, we have been learning about how important our water is and what impact we have on the water.  We built simulation models of water sheds to demonstrate the erosion and deposition process, and how the oceans become salty!  We learned about how everything we do here in Calgary eventually ends up in the Hudson’s Bay.  Another big event this month was the Riverwatch Field study trip.  We learned first hand how our water goes from wastewater to fresh water.  We saw evidence of how the river forms the land and how Calgary is using flood mitigation strategies to reduce bank erosion.
