from 9-12! Students are asked to bring at least one frozen container to aid in our Ice Sculpture station. Here is an example of what is in my freezer tonight (with a little added food colouring)…
Looking forward to tomorrow :)!
Are you watching the Olympics? We were so excited to watch the Olympic Opening Ceremonies on Friday! You can watch live footage here.
Tomorrow morning you can watch Mikael Kingsbury, Marc-Antoine Gagnon and Phil Marquis compete in the Men’s Freestyle Skiing! These were 3 of the Olympic athletes that we skyped with the other week! Tune in at 7am tomorrow morning for the Qualification Rounds and 11am for the Finals!
If you could be an Olympian at any sport, which sport would you choose and why?
What do you think it takes to be an Olympic athlete?
We have been preparing to watch the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia by giving Show & Tell presentations about the winter sports and the Canadian athletes competing in them. Today we had the privilege of being able to Skype with 4 Canadian athletes on our 2014 Olympic ski team – Mikaël Kingsbury, Marc-Antoine Gagnon, Audrey Robichaud, and Phil Marquis!!! We got to ask them questions along with Mrs. Taggart’s and Mrs. Sharpe’s classes. A BIG Thank You to Mrs. Taggart for making this possible :)!
Here is a #WeAreWinter video of Mikaël Kingsbury
And here is an excited tweet from Phil Marquis, who just recently made the Olympic team!
What did you learn from talking to the athletes?
If you got to ask them a question, what was it?
