How the World Works -English

Over the past few weeks, Grade 4 students have been learning about innovations and inventions. The English skills covered throughout the unit have been reading and writing. Texts used for reading comprehension tasks have been related to invention and innovation, as has been the vocabulary and spelling tests.Students have been encouraged to learn new vocabulary related to the UOI and look up the definition for each new word.

For their final, formative assessment, students are writing a letter to their chosen inventor, from the past to inform them about both current and future innovations to their original invention.
