Yesterday grade 5 travelled to the Hong Kong Science Museum to see a special Leonardo da Vinci exhibition. Our current unit is Where We Are In Place and Time and we have been researching inventions that are important to us today. Leonardo da Vinci was an incredible inventor and it was great to see many of of his inventions close up and realise how many amazing ideas he had. Students will be finding out more and testing their knowledge at Brainpop.

Today we started researching Chinese costumes for our upcoming fashion show. We will be putting our research onto a wiki Chinese Clothing Wiki and practicing good research skills. Remember topic + focus.

Remember when looking at websites to be a critical evaluator:

A - Author (Who wrote it, why?)

B - Bias (Is it pushing one point of view, opinion or fact?)

C - Content (Is it broad in scope, does it cover a lot?Is it specific?)

D - Dates (When was it published? Look for copyright)

E - Editor (Is there a fact checker behind the author?)
