The First Europeans in Canada

Good morning, class!

If you choose to, you can watch this 30-minute documentary about L'Anse aux Meadows. Don't worry if you can't understand all the words. Just relax and watch. When you finish, ask me for the worksheet. I have five questions for you. Don't worry; I will tell you exactly where to find the answers.

Also here are some photos of the historic site as it is today.

This week we are learning about the first settlers in Canada and in this area. We know that the French settled Windsor first. This Thursday we will visit The Francois Baby House and Museum. We will study a bit about the foundation of Windsor and also a bit about the War of 1812 before we go. This may help us appreciate the historic site more.

Health Access Week

Hello, students!

This Tuesday is Health Access Day. Our bus trip to Fogolar Furlan Club fits in nicely with our current topic of nosocomial or hospital-acquired infections and staying safer in hospital.

If you would like me to make you an emergency info card for your wallet, you can enter your information in this survey. Don't worry. Once you hit SUBMIT at then end, nobody will be able to see the information but me. Only I have the password, and this blog is a secure website.

The link to the questionnaire is HERE.

If you would like to copy my template over to your own Google Drive, click THIS LINK.

To practice spelling and syntax with our words, log into Spelling City. Your assignment is waiting.

Otherwise, here are some links to activities that support our module on staying safer in hospital.

Explore these steps for avoiding hospital-acquired infections.

Study vocabulary with sound.

For level 6/7 students, here is a fascinating story on America's National Public Radio about the human microbiome.

You could also watch this TED Talk about the human microbiome with subtitles in your first language. In the picture below, you see how to turn on subtitles in many languages. Hover your mouse over the bottom toolbar to see the subtitles icon.

Rebecca, here is the audio file.

Where is Fogolar Furlan Club?

Since the government is boycotting Caboto Club (as am I, but don't tell my partner that), Health Access Day has been moved to Fogolar Furlan Club this year.

You have asked me to post the link to the map here on our classroom blog.



For those who love the city bus more than our school bus, here is the transit map.
