It’s Shocking!

This week, we started our physics unit on electricity in grade 9 science class. Over the last few days, we learned about the positively shocking properties of static electricity and observed these properties in action using the pith ball and metal leaf electroscopes.

Big Ideas and Big Data

The grade 9 TOPS geography class ended their unit on big data by pitching an app of their creation. From mapping the school to finding free WiFi, the projects were both unique and creative. Their next unit will be on physical geography, where they will learn about Canada’s various landforms.
