DI MMM’s become just M&M’s for Provincials

Destination Imagination is a competition that PLP groups from Grades 8-10 enter each year. It offers a creative way to express your learning through a competition format with Instant Challenges and a Performance Challenge. It’s actually pretty fun. Our team this year (Medical Men of Mystery or MMM), competed in the medical challenge where we…

Destination Imagination and the Medical Men of Mystery (or MMM for short)

I found this on the Destination Imagination BC Website: BC Original Minds Association has been a leader in creative problem-solving programs for British Columbia students since 1983.  Since 1999, BCOMA has held the license to offer Destination…

The Wild West (of British Columbia)

For this project, we did a “Namesake Project”. Our driving question was “How can we help people who aren’t from BC know more about BC’s history?” Most of the class went to Victoria on a field study, but I stayed behind and worked on a Vancouver location. Before I get into the video, I wanted…

Like Terms, do I like them or not….

For this term in Scimatics, we learned about like terms. Like terms are a bit confusing and I had a hard time at first understanding them. Like terms is when you have an Algebraic expression (this is the part where a bunch of numbers and letters are written out with adding, subtracting and multiplying), and…

So to begin, we are going to be talking about Louis Riel. He’s kind of a controversial figure. Some people say he’s a hero, and some people…

Winter Exhibition 2018

For this Winter Exhibition, which PLP does every year, we had to create and immersive room using chemistry, a theme, and a story. Now you may be wondering how all these things can become linked and made into a project. Let me explain. In Science we had been learning about chemistry, specifically ionic and covalent…

Video Reflection Learning Post

This term in Maker, we focused on showing our learning through videos. At first this seemed like an easy one for me – anything that involves less writing for someone who is dyslexic is a bonus. However, we quickly learned that there is more to making an amazing video than just having the camera rolling….

Chemistry Story

In Chemistry this term we learned about atomic friendships. There are two kinds of atomic friendships that make new compounds or molecules. Ionic and covalent. The main difference in these two friendships, or bonds, is how generous the atoms are with one another. Ionic bonds are more generous because they donate their electrons to the…
