Social studies - For the beginning on March, we will wrap up our unit analyzing the historic and contemporary relationship of people to land in Canada and the impact of the environment on the lives of people living in Canada.

Science - Near the end of the month, we will begin our unit on the human body.

Math - This month we will do a unit on geometry. Geometric shapes are in the world all around us, and mathematics can help your child recognize important features of geometry. Recognizing geometric features and understanding geometric
form are key steps in developing a higher level of mathematical thinking.

In this unit, your child will:
• Build, represent, and describe geometric objects and shapes
• Identify and sort quadrilaterals (that is, shapes with 4 sides)

Grade 6 Math - This month we will start Unit 4- continue working on Angles and Polygons.

In this unit, your child will:

·         Identify, describe, and classify angles.

·         Measure, name, and construct angles using informal methods.

·         Estimate, measure, draw, and label angles using a protractor.

·         Make and apply generalizations about the sum of the angles in triangles

Geometry is an important part of a student’s mathematical experience. Geometry provides students with a strong link between the mathematics they learn in the classroom and the real world. People with a deep understanding of geometry and good spatial sense will be able to describe the world around them and appreciate the geometry found in art, nature, and architecture.

Here are some suggestions for activities you can do at home with your child.

·         Have your child give examples of various types of angles.
Have them check their angles using the corner of a square or rectangle.

·         Look for shapes and objects, and estimate the sizes of the angles that you
see. Use 45
°, 90°, 180°, and 360° as reference angles to make more refined estimates.

·         Go on an angle hunt. Look for objects with angles that are less than 90°, 90°, between 90° and 180°, 180°, and between 180° and 360°.

Art - We will be completing our Drama unit this month - puppet theatre!
