Grade 4 field trip: Matter and materials unit

Grade 4 students are learning that “natural materials can undergo changes that may provide challenges and benefits for society and the environment.” This is the central idea for the Matter and materials unit of inquiry which falls under the transdisciplinary theme How the world works.

To learn how materials undergo changes, the class visited 二月二农场”February Second Farm” where we learned the process of making flour from wheat; what you need to do to make steam bun (馒头) from flour; and the processes involved in making warm soya milk. We also learned about the role steam buns play in Chinese culture and traditions.

Below are photos and videos from this field trip.
