Science Fun & Life-Size Games!


Every second week for their extended lunch period, Grade 5 students at Pierre Elliott Trudeau elementary school have been participating in a Life-Sized Games program.

The first week kicked off with a giant game of checkers. Students helped one another and strategized about their opponents’ future moves. Next to be experienced was a game of life-sized chess. Students became the pieces, and physically stepped around the game board in order for a piece to move. Teammates enthusiastically discussed the next best moves and displayed lovely teamwork. Everyone anxiously awaits to see which games will be played next!


Silly Putty is so much fun! Kindergarten students at St. Monica and Pre-K students at Pierre Elliott Trudeau learned about liquids, solids, chemical reactions, and polymers. They created individual pieces of art, and then packed them up to take home to play with all over again.
