Graphs in 3rd grade

By Francis Carlier

Graphs are visual displays of information.  It is important for students to learn how to collect, organize, and interpret information.  To make graphing more relevant and relatable, we surveyed friends and family members in and outside of the classroom.  Afterwards, we had a Graphing Museum Walk in order to share what we’ve learned.

Protect our oceans – by the 4th graders

By Francis Carlier

Je suis allée à la plage avec mes amis parce que j’ ai beaucoup appris en classe sur la protection de nos océans alors je voulais faire quelque chose pour aider. À la plage on a vu des animaux qui étaient morts à cause du plastique. On a ramassé beaucoup de plastique et on veut le refaire pour que nos océans soient en meilleure santé.

I went to the beach with my friends because I learned a lot in class about how to protect our oceans so I wanted to do something to help. At the beach we saw a lot of sea life that was destroyed because of plastic/pollution. We picked up a lot of plastic and we want to do it again to help our ocean be healthy again.

Notre maîtresse, madame Aka, a lancé ce projet pour nous sensibiliser à ce qui se passe dans la nature. La pollution affecte énormément l’océan et il faut que ça s’arrête. Le plastique prend 500 à 1000 ans pour se décomposer et vient dans notre assiette quand on mange du poisson qui a lui-même mangé du microplastique. On a aussi fait des expériences sur le pétrole et les liquides qui se mélangent avec l’eau et on a fait un field trip virtuel avec l’association shore buddies.

The teacher, Mrs. Aka started this project for us to sense what is happening in nature. Pollution is affecting the ocean enormously and it has to stop. Plastic takes 500 to 1000 years to decompose and comes onto our plate when we eat fish that have itself eaten microplastic. We have also done experiments with petroleum and liquids that mix with water. We went on a virtual field trip with the Shore buddies CEO and he taught us more about ocean pollution.

The group photo of us picking up trash at La Jolla shores. This picture was taken right before we found the most trash in a bomb fire area.

Nous ramassons les déchets à La Jolla Shores. Cette photo a été prise avant de trouver beaucoup de déchets dans la plage.

A sea lion killed by pollution or plastic; it washed up on shore.Then, we performed a funeral for the poor seal that died  by accident caused human nature. We are terrible.

Un phoque est sans doute mort à cause de la pollution ou du plastique.Il a échoué sur la plage. Après, on a fait des funérailles pour lui.

National Arbor Day

By Francis Carlier

National Arbor Day was April 30th. The 3rd grade B planted a tree: a ponderosa pine in our little garden. It will be transplanted in a permanent location in the school landscape. 

It was a very special moment enjoyed by the group. Each student of the class participated in the plantation respecting distanciation of course.

It was followed by a moment of exchange and debate about the importance of trees. “Trees are important !” a student said. “It gives us oxygen.” another one added. “Trees also provide shelter for animals.
