Grade 6 Language/Social Studies update*

*Other Grade 6 updates will be sent to parents shortly, insha’Allah.

Language:

Over the past weeks, students practiced EQAO language booklets, as well as readings from “Underground to Canada”. Comprehension questions for the book, as well as vocabulary words, will assist students in improving their skills.  We have also done a lot of work on learning the key parts of Listening/Speaking skills.  Students practiced the skills, and are creating multi-media presenations on aspects of the “Discussion Elements” they have learned and were quizzed on.

 Social Studies:

We have wrapped up our Aboriginal Unit with a documentary, and also hope to welcome a Muslim Aboriginal woman answer questions the students may still have on the topic. We will shortly begin a new unit on Canada and the World Connections which will carry through to June, insha’Allah.

  1. What is Earth Day?
    Earth Day is a birthday. Just like a birthday is a day to celebrate a person, Earth Day is a day to celebrate the Earth. Earth Day was formed on April 22, 1970, in San Francisco, California. Every year, over a hundred countries join to celebrate the earth. On Earth Day, we remember to appreciate nature and learn ways to protect our environment.
    Earth Day reminds us we all share the same planet. Sharing the earth means taking responsibility for what we use and how we use it. It is a day to think of the environmental challenges we face and how to solve them. Protecting Earth is every person’s and every country’s responsibility.
    On Earth Day we should clean the earth, plant trees, and rally to get the governments attention. For example: in India, one of the Earth Days was celebrates by approximately 1,200 kids. They held a rally which had signs with slogans and messages. The children also performed skits about the environment. The India Habitat Center held painting and quiz competitions.
    Another example is: in Kenya, distinguished guests and schoolchildren planted 1,000 trees in Nairobi’s endangered Karura forest. The plantings were done to honour Earth Day and Kenya’s National Tree Planting Day on April 21.
    In conclusion, the Earth Day is a very important event. We should honour the earth and remember that it is the duty of each and every one of us to protect and clean the earth. We are living on the earth so we must also take care of it.
