In Science we have been talking about the different between googleable questions and non-googleable questions. I placed the two signs in the back of the classroom to post questions we use in class and attempt to place them into the correct category.
Today two students sat in the back counter for a lesson and as another students turned to look at them she said "Look Toronto Blue Jays are googleable and Toronto Maple Leafs are not"
Very true today especially as we watch the Toronto Blue Jays in playoffs. Go Jays Go!

Hi, I'm Katey, and I'm the guest blogger for today from 706 homeroom. Today, in science class, we did something that was both fun and a great learning experience. We had a "mystery Skype" session with a class from another country! We Skyped a class from another country, and we asked each other questions and tried to figure out where they lived, while they did the same for us. After asking lots and lots of questions, we finally found out that they live in San Antonio, Texas. It was an amazingly fun experience, and we would love to do it again sometime. Another great day in science and technology!
Today, we are doing a Skype call with a different class that is somewhere else in the world! Me and my class are trying to figure out what country, city, state and school they are in. We have now figured out what country, city and school they are at. It was super fun!
Hi it's Brooke and Alison from 703 and we just mystery Skype'd with a grade 8 class which was somewhere in the world. Our class's job was to find out where they lived, with questions that we came up with.The answers had to be yes or no. We found out they lived in Manhattan beach California. By asking questions like "Do you live near the ocean?"and "Is it warm where you live?". After a few questions from us they asked us questions about where we lived.We figured out where they lived first. It was hard but it was also fun.
