Phenomenon week at Mäntytie
Last week we studied Time from multiple different angles. On Tuesday we started with a fantastic kick-off and got to meet a Professor (Steve) who traveled through time. From him we learned about different clocks from different eras. Today we had a TIME fair in the Gym to learn what everyone did last week.
During the week the students took part in various workshops and projects, learning about Timezones, different calendars, the meaning of time in music amongst many other things.
A group of preschoolers and 1st and 2nd graders got to build their own grandfather clocks or wristwatches. Some participated in a Butterfly-themed dance workshop. Grade 5 got to study time and decide what they started to work on. They wrote time related stories or raps for example and filmed them. Grade 6 worked on the theme time relating to their coming Camp School to England. What a fantastic week!
