Below is a video of the grade 3-4 students participating in an activity called Goal Ball. This is a sport in the Paralympics Games, which are the games for people with disabilites that take place at the same venue as the summer and winter Olympic games. Goal Ball is for those who are blind or have visual impairments. Students were blindfolded to give them them the feeling of what it would be like to play a sport without being able to see. It was also the introduction to Grade 3's upcoming Unit of Inquiry in the classroom about prejudice.








Below you can view a few pictures from the Game Inventors Unit. Each group of 4-5 students had to create a game, make a poster, present the poster and demonstrate their game to the rest of the class. There are 2 pictures from each group, the first one of the groups presenting and the second one a close-up of their game creation posters.
